Partners: Community Organizations
CCCS relies on the establishment of viable partnerships with community agencies in order to address the academic, social/emotional/behavioral, family, and health needs fo each and every student.
In 2011-12, CCCS collaborated with 82 community partners. The expansion in range and number of partnerships has been a central focus of implementation in the past two years. School Site Coordinators were charged with increasing connections with community services, including after-school programs, enrichment opportunities, mental health counselors, summer camps, tutors, mentors, and providers of family services.
Resource Advisory Council
The Resouce Advisory Council (RAC) is a unique group of community partners who help to shape the practice of CCCS. The RAC meets twice annually to help CCCS form more effective partnerships between and among our office, community partners, and participating Catholic schools.
