Community Schools Initiative
Dear Littlerock High School Staff,
I would like to take an opportunity to introduce myself, my name is Cherie ‘Amora’ Coles and I am the Littlerock High School Community Schools Specialist. I would also like to reintroduce your very own, Guadalupe Rodriguez, the Littlerock High School Education Community Worker.
Littlerock High School has partnered with the Los Angeles County of Education to become a Community School. The purpose of a Community School is to build equity for students by highlighting areas of need and leveraging community resources so that students are healthy, prepared for college, and career and civic ready. A Community School serves as the hub of its community and unites families, educators and community partners in an effort to provide all students with top-quality academics, enrichment, health and social services, and opportunities to succeed in school and in life. Together, we will aim to improve student outcomes, reduce mental health stigma and social isolation, as well as strengthen community partnerships by building new alliances and networks.
As a program specialist, my role includes maximizing capacity of current resources and support systems to address the needs of our students and families. My goal is to collaborate with school staff including administrators, counselors, and teachers to identify, develop and implement school why I support systems as we aim to reduce barriers and increase academic achievement for the students a Littlerock High School.
The role of the Education Community Worker is to support the students and families of the Littlerock High School community.
We are looking forward to meeting you and working together to support the students and families of Littlerock High School community. If you have questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or Guadalupe at Rodriguez_guadalupe@lacoe.edu.
