What does our Mission look like?

“Do not only point out the way, but lead the way.” – Sioux Proverb

The FSCS Mission is being accomplished when:

Each student has a goal based on their own interest

Each student has high quality guidance (case management)

Each student is knowledgeable about the steps needed to reach their goals

Each student knows how to work in teams, communicates well, and is multilingual

Each student reads and writes at their highest potential and at a level that will allow them to get a job at a living wage

Each student is an independent thinker who is flexible and can see other points of view

Each student is self-reliant, has a multicultural competency, and knows how to create support networks for themselves

Each student knows how to write a resume

“Everything has a beginning.” – Kiowa Proverb

“If I am in harmony with my family, that’s success.” – Ute Proverb

The Home + School Connection

Quality education — High-caliber curriculum and instruction enable all children to meet challenging academic standards and use all of the community’s assets as resources for learning.

Youth development — Young people develop their assets and talents, form positive relationships with peers and adults, and serve as resources to their communities.

Family support — Family resource centers, early childhood development programs, and coordinated health and social services build on individual strengths and enhance family life.

Family and community engagement — Family members and other residents actively participate in designing, supporting, monitoring and advocating quality activities in the school and community.

Community development — All participants focus on strengthening the social networks, economic viability and physical infrastructure of the surrounding community.

Financing Community Schools: The Importance of Leveraged Relationships

Philanthropic Support: local community-based organizations, community foundations, national philanthropies, and corporate funders

Federal government (e.g., through programs with a particular focus on school and community relationships, such as the 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Safe Schools/ Healthy Students and Corporation for National Service, or through federal-state programs, such as Medicaid or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families)

  • State governments (e.g., through state-level initiatives such as Missouri’s Caring Communities, California’s Healthy Start, Washington’s Readiness to Learn and New York’s Advantage Schools)
  • Local government (e.g., through local appropriations as in New York City’s Beacons or through community development block grants)
  • Local school system (e.g., through locally appropriated funds or through the Title I or Safe and Drug Free School Program)
