Community Achieves is a district-led initiative that supports the development of full-service community schools through infrastructure and technical assistance within a collective impact framework.
MNPS recognizes that our schools are an integral part of the community. Reinforcing the link between parents, the community and schools will foster student success. Through Community Achieves, nineteen of our schools will become Community Schools – offering needed resources and support for parents, students, and the community. Each school will assess its needs and work with partners to offer programs focused on four key areas: College and Career Readiness, Family Engagement, Health and Wellness, and Social Services.
Examples of resources that will be available are Family Resource Centers, health clinics, after-school programs, recreation, and classes for adults. Learn more about the community school model.
The mission of Community Achieves is to design full-service community schools through a framework that strategically aligns resources to foster student success. The results focused partnership between parents, the community, and schools will personalize learning for students and lead to stronger families and healthier communities.
Each Community Achieves school has assessed its needs for the 2016-17 school year within four key areas: College and Career Readiness, Family Engagement, Health and Wellness, and Social Services.
Alignment Nashville, using our INVITATION TO PARTICIPATETM process, will help to engage partners to offer programs within those key areas that target the specific needs of Community Achieves schools.
