  • The Rochester City School District is committed to shifting the educational landscape in many ways including the adoption of a more inclusive approach to student learning. Our holistic approach is currently reflected in establishing 10 of our schools into Community Schools that aim to improve student achievement through strong partnerships among principals, parents, teacher and community organizations.

    The Children's Aid Society Developmental Triangle Model

    Community Schools are defined as "a place and a set of partnerships" that focus resources on students and families, resulting in students who are ready and able to learn in school.  A community school acts as a hub, offering a coordinated approach to connect and cultivate assets in the community and to link families to services, so that educators can focus on teaching and students can focus on learning.
