Full-Service Community Schools
This chapter takes a closer look at one of the types of programs featured in this book — the full-service community schools. It turns to school reform programs and to efforts to deal specifically with sex, drugs, and violence. It reviews the various types of school–community partnership programs that are on the horizon at the moment, presents several examples, looks at research, and discusses some of the issues that have come to the fore as these programs have evolved. A full-service community school integrates the delivery of quality education with whatever health and social services are required in that community. These institutions draw on both school resources and outside community agencies that come into schools and join forces to provide seamless programs. Examples of full-service community schools are the Children's Aid Society, Woodrow Wilson Middle School, and Missouri Caring Community Schools.
