Community Partnerships

Linking Modernized Schools to Higher Achievement 13

Community agencies and service providers can have a greater impact when they partner with a school. These partnerships, in turn, greatly increase Community Connectivity. Co-location on the school’s campus can be valuable, as well. This was evident in both modernized and non-modernized schools, demonstrating that community programming can enhance engagement with a school and its surrounding neighborhood, regardless of a school’s modernization status.
