The community school model is showing success across the country in improving equity for public schools. Community schools promote equity by engaging diverse voices and community partners to support health and wellness, youth and community development, and family leadership in our public schools. Students show academic success and improved physical and emotional health in these safe, supportive school environments.
Learn how equity promoted by community schools is improving neighborhoods and helping kids succeed. Milwaukee Public Schools and United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County are proud to welcome José Muñoz, who will speak on Monday, November 5 from 5:15 to 7 p.m. at United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.
Muñoz is director of the Coalition for Community Schools and has more than 25 years of experience in the field. He served as ABC Community School Partnership Executive Director in Albuquerque, uniting countless partners and ramping up Community Schools from four to 26 in five years. The Coalition for Community Schools joins more than 200 national partners to support 5,000 community schools.
