We help schools and communities align resources to make sure every child has access to learning, health and social supports.

California Community Schools Network

The California Community Schools Network is a hub for leaders, practitioners, and advocates. Building on longstanding work across the state, the Network brings these individuals and organizations together to join forces and multiply our impact through the following:

•  Share information about successful community schools policies, programs, and practices in California

•  Highlight the range of technical assistance available to local community schools efforts across California

•  Build broader understanding and support for community schools among state-level policymakers, school districts, and community leaders

•  Develop and promote a state-level policy framework (administrative and/or legislative) that supports local community schools work including a focus on the range of contributing funding streams

The California Community Schools Network supports the growth of community schools across the state so that all students will have the supports and opportunities they need in order to be successful in school, career, and life.
