What is a Community School?

  • Community schools are a ‘whole child,’ whole school improvement strategy where districts and their schools work closely with teachers, students and families and partner with community agencies and their local government to align community resources behind improving student outcomes.

    “Brandon ECHO has already partnered with us on several projects,” Leto said. “Brandon Portillo’s has agreed to be a business partner to support teacher and student incentives, and in return, I will send prospective students for employment.” Leto is also working on forming a partnership with Keel Farms where students will be able to volunteer at Keel Farms to get more connected to agriculture.

    If you are a local business and you would like to offer services to help Brandon High School with its community school program, you can contact Lauren Leto at the email above.
