Schools should be used for so much more than school. That’s the message of this report outlining the benefits and advantages of using schools to provide a wide range of services and activities, from preventive health care exams to after-school activities.
The authors say that locating community and human services in schools improves access to and participation in such services by both youth and families; youths’ connections to the school; student attendance, academic achievement and behavior; and family involvement in children’s schooling.
