Community Schools create and enhance school and community-based partnerships to ensure that students and their parents and caregivers have access to programs and services that help them achieve success in school and in life. Community Schools Incentive Initiative grants awarded by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) fund partnerships that coordinate educational, developmental, family, health and after-school-care programs. These programs are based in public or public charter schools and activities occur during school and non-school hours. Community Schools serve students, families and local communities with the objectives of improving academic achievement and building stronger relationships between schools and communities.
The Community Schools Incentive Initiative is a three-year grant competition. The current grant period is from fiscal year 2021 to fiscal year 2023. The following resources were made available to support with the grant application process.
