Full Service Community School
The Full Service Community School (FSCS) Approach
Recognition that no one entity or system acting alone can realistically improve all outcomes, for all children, living and learning under all circumstances, is the first step toward adopting the Full-Service Community School (FSCS) approach. A Full-Service Community School is the product of intentional partnerships and shared leadership between the school, the community, students and families, all coming together to address the broad spectrum of needs presented.
The FSCS approach supports Nebraska’s framework for school renewal and acceleration in the wake of the COVID pandemic. It brings together a variety of diverse partners, each contributing their own unique experience, insight and resources into the collaborative effort of ensuring all children and families are successful in learning, earning and life.
At its very core, the FSCS approach focuses on the “Whole Child”, surrounded by the family, living within the community, as illustrated in the Developmental Triangle below.
Consistent with the “Whole Child” model, the FSCS approach assesses and aligns policies and practices that address social, personal, academic and developmental success and create positive, supportive environments aimed at ensuring that each child has their physical, mental and social emotional needs met at every level, in every grade and setting throughout the school year. A “Whole Child” framework includes principles such as equity, inclusiveness and partnerships between the school and community.
Our mission is to assist children, youth, and families to be healthy and resilient through a prevention network of community resources.
