Today, as you may have guessed by the title, we’ll dive into the value of Integrated Student Supports. From after-school hours to in-school supports - we’re going to cover how integrated student support shows up in our 7 Community Schools and share some amazing stories of impact from the schools themselves.
Within the pillar of integrated student support, there are multiple strategies that are implemented. If you were to walk into our local community schools, at most you would find Mentorship Programs, School-Based Health Centers, and Resource Rooms. While these three shining examples of integrated student support are not the only showcase of this pillar, they are the most common in Buncombe County and are the three main strategies utilized to ensure that the Community School strategy is being implemented across the county.
