Dear Sac City Unified families,

We want to provide some updates about our efforts to expand the community school model in our system, and share an opportunity to apply for the Community School Advisory Council (CSAC). 

What鈥檚 a Community School? 

  • Successful community schools are inspired by a research-based strategy to create welcoming environments, ensure underserved communities receive equitable resources, create community partnerships and foster the self-empowerment necessary to support student learning, strong families and thriving communities.
  • Community schools collaborate with students, families, community partners and business organizations in decision making that affects teaching and learning.
Which SCUSD Sites are Community Schools? 

So far, eighteen school sites throughout the district have received community schools grants from the State of California:

  • Abraham Lincoln Elementary
  • C茅sar E. Ch谩vez Intermediate Elementary
  • Earl Warren Elementary
  • Edward Kemble Elementary
  • Ethel I. Baker Elementary

What鈥檚 the Community School Advisory Council (CSAC)?
  • The CSAC is an advisory group that weighs in on implementing the community school model and collaborates with district staff, students, families and community members.
  • They will oversee the implementation of the SCUSD Community School Implementation Grants awarded by the California Department of Education (CDE).
