Board Policy 1100 - Community Schools


The purpose of this Policy is to provide standards for the development of community schools with the Prince George’s County Public School System to help students and families overcome the in–school and out–of–school barriers that prevent children from learning and succeeding over the course of their lives by having an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and family and community engagement.

Community Schools create positive conditions for learning in both schools and communities in partnership with families, governmental leaders and agencies, businesses, as well as nonprofit and faith-based organizations.

In PGCPS, Community Schools shall serve as an effective educational and holistic strategy to address both concentrated poverty and remove barriers to academic success, and to achieve equitable outcomes for all students.

This policy establishes the administrative responsibilities for the support and implementation of a Community Schools Strategy that provides high-quality teaching, integrated social supports, and family and community engagement in order to improve educational outcomes and the well-being of PGCPS students.
