A CASE STUDY THAT EXAMINES THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL MODEL IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SETTINGS IN WEST TENNESSEE
ABSTRACT: The need to involve community in the educational process, to offer services that make students successful, and to have these services within the school building are all critical aspects of the community school model (Dryfoos et al., 1994). There is a lack of current awareness on the processes and outcome of the school and community partnership. More was accomplished when schools, families and communities work together to promote and improve schools (Epstein, 2010). This case study examined the processes and outcomes of the community school model in an elementary school setting.
