Schools 360 helps schools, networks, and districts implement the systems and structures necessary to be academically challenging, responsive to the students’ social and emotional needs, and focused on preparing all students for post-secondary success. With the suport of FHI 360, schools and their partners build capacity to more effectively meet the needs of students and the adults who work with them. FHI 360 knows that schools are systems, and to affect positive change, an integrated development approach is necessary. Integrated development refers to an intentional approach in designing and delivering policies, programs or services across multiple sectors and disciplines to achieve greater impact. In the school arean, this means that we must recognize that in under-resourced communities, schools must ensure that student success can not be viewed in a vaccuum. To truly level the playing field and ensure that all students have what they need to thrive, schools must provide supports across multiple sectors including, but not limited to: healthy food, and the development of good eating practices; medical and mental health, including regular eye, dental, and physical exams; healthy practices, such as exercise and physical activity; the development of social emotional competencies and positive behaviors; and the development of cognitive and noncognitive skills necessary for academic success. While there this model can be implemented using a variety of support systems, Schools 360 is well in-line with the research proven community schools model that is gathering much support across the country.
