The Cohort 3 team will be providing resources with a focus on Science, Mathematics, and Comprehensive Literacy from communities that will enhance and provide school learning climate and classroom instructions. These resources will increase parent, school, community ties and attendance. Our goal is to improve attendance, reduce chronic absenteeism, develop partnerships with community agencies, city and civic organizations, neighborhood leaders, businesses, and volunteers, because our schools benefit from the richness of community resources; we are enriching the extended day learning and after school programs for our students and families.
