Empowering students to succeed in school and life

Students attending Title I schools in low-income communities often struggle to focus on their education because of the many complex challenges they face daily.

Often, students in these schools struggle with:

  • Poverty
  • Lack of access to adequate health care
  • Exposure to violence and other crime
  • Exposure to drugs
  • Hunger
  • Abuse or neglect

Community Partnership Schools address students’ holistic needs, recognizing their unique challenges – and opportunities. Many schools offer:

  • On-site access to health and wellness services
  • On-site food pantries
  • Counseling
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Cultural enrichment activities
  • After-school activities
  • Parent Resource Centers

No two Community Partnership Schools are exactly alike – each centers on unique community needs to allow students to focus on their education and future success. But all share a similar model – one with proven methods for accountability and outcomes.

A partnership among Children’s Home Society of Florida, the University of Central Florida and Orange County Public Schools brought the successful Community Partnership School model to Florida. Florida’s first Community Partnership School – Evans Community Partnership School – officially opened at Evans High School in Orlando on October 13, 2012.

Community Partnership School successes include:

  • Increases in graduation rates
  • Increases in student achievement
  • Improved student attendance
  • Improved parent involvement
  • Overwhelming community support
