Schools as Hubs
Schools as Community Hubs (Hubs) connect residents, students, and their families to resources and supports within their neighborhood. The strategy makes a school – a place that already acts as a natural anchor for kids – the center of an entire neighborhood by bringing together multiple services and programs and making them accessible to everyone - not just students at the school. Hubs strive to collaborate with area partners to offer an integrated and impactful array of services, supports, and opportunities that lead to a better neighborhood.
Each Hub develops a team of the Hub Director, Principal, administrators, teachers, support services staff, partners, parents, neighborhood residents, and other community members/businesses who determine the services provided at that location.
Why It Matters
There are numerous positive outcomes to these Hubs, including improved academic performance, healthier and safer communities, and more.
