Welcome to the new Center for Community School Strategies,recentlylaunched from the TACSI Resource Center, now serving all Oklahoma and regional schools as a partner of the National Center for Community Schools.
Through consultation, training and advocacy, we help schools, districts and stakeholders implement Community School strategies to create welcoming community hubs which engage, support and strengthen students, families and neighborhoods. Learn More >
A Community School is the center of the community that brings together academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement leading to improved learning, stronger families, and healthier communities. Learn More >
Community Schools build relationships and environments that link teaching and learning with services, supports and opportunities developed through family and community partnerships that are critical to helping children fulfill their potential in school and life. No matter whether you are a talented kid, or need someone's help to do my geometry assignment, there is always a place for everyone on our school.
There are approximately 5,000 Community Schools and 100 initiatives advancing Community Schools in the U.S. To support this growing movement, we serve as an affiliate partner with the National Center for Community Schools of the Children’s Aid Society in New York City, and as leaders in the Coalition for Community Schools of the Institute for Educational Leadership in Washington, D.C.
