Community Partnership Schools Forum

POPS, Manasota, along with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Florida and the Peace Education and Action Center, is sponsoring a forum, ‘Community Partnership School’ Model Transforms Struggling Schools into Thriving Schools.  The creation of Community Partnership Schools is an important way to challenge rampant school privatization that is harming education all over the nation but especially in Florida.  The Community Partnership School model is an evidenced-based approach that is transforming struggling schools into thriving learning hubs.  Community schools invest in children through quality teaching, challenging and engaging curricula, wraparound support services, positive school climate and strong ties to family and community.  Authentic parent, youth and community engagement is at the core of the Community School concept.
