Standard has been awarded $5.7 million for the CA Community School Partnership Program grant! Thank you to Dr. Jocelyn Hively, Director for Student Support Services for her work on writing this grant!

These partnerships provide an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement.

Community schools often include four evidence-informed programmatic features, which are aligned and integrated into high-quality, rigorous teaching and learning practices and environments.
