Community Schools Partnership

Posted Oct. 14, 2016

We are proud to announce that the Achievement Center will be participating in the Erie Public School/United Way Community Schools Initiative. The agency has been selected to be the Lead Partner for Edison Elementary School.

The community school model, launched earlier this school year, is a strategy for organizing school and community resources around student success. A community school is both a place and set of partnerships that address health, wellness and the social needs of its students, their families, and the surrounding neighborhood.

The Lead Partner in the community schools strategy is the organization that joins the school to manage and lead the work of developing and sustaining the community school. The Achievement Center will be hiring a Director who will work in close relationship with the principal and the Community School Leadership Team. If you, or someone you know, may be interested in the Community School Director position, please see the agency website for job requirements and submit cover letters/resumes by October 21, 2016.
