*Newly Added Partnership

So, what does it mean to connect the right students to the right supports at the right time? Imagine there’s a fourth grader whose parents both work two jobs to make ends meet. Sometimes this student has a hard time focusing in class and could really benefit from some extra help in an after school club but can’t go because they won’t have a way to get home.

That’s where Community PLUS Schools comes in. Our team works with the teacher and parents to not only get that student enrolled in the club but to make sure they have transportation to get home.

COMMUNITY SUPPORTS

Community PLUS Schools helps students with a number of things – access to food, child care, transportation, clubs, tutoring and more.

  • Tutoring
  • Classroom support
  • Math Whizz Club
  • Book Club
  • Computer Programming Club
  • Computer Club
  • Kindergarten Readers Club
  • Morning Math Club
  • Connection to basic services such as food, clothing, shelter, and health care
  • Transportation

With the help of the Anchorage School District, Community PLUS Schools is able to connect students to the community supports they need at no cost to the family. The close partnership we have with schools and teachers also allows students to be continually monitored so we can see how they progress and provide further assistance when needed.

WHAT WE’VE FOUND

In the 2017-18 school year, 93 percent of students receiving two or more supports met attendance goals. The data doesn’t lie – we know that students who receive community support have higher success rates.
