FRANKLIN SUN COMMUNITY SCHOOL
Franklin is a SUN COMMUNITY SCHOOL!!!
SUN stands for Schools Uniting Neighborhoods. SUN Community Schools are the school-based delivery sites for a comprehensive set of services including educational, enrichment, recreational, social and health services. This nationally recognized system of care works to ensure families are healthy so they can champion and support their children. The SUN Service System collaboration is managed by Multnomah County http://web.multco.us/sun/sun-community-schools and this site is funded by Portland Children’s Levy and delivered by Impact NW www.impactnw.org
SUN Community Schools are not a program, but rather a place and support hub where schools and communities work together to support the success of children and families and provide a comprehensive array of services. They serve as the vehicle to link a school with community institutions, such as libraries, parks, community centers, neighborhood health clinics and area churches and businesses.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR FRANKLIN STUDENTS AND FAMILIES?
Impact NW SUN staff will have an office at Franklin (room 109) in order to coordinate:
-Before & After school activities (including academic support, enrichment & recreational activities)
-Adult educational opportunities
-Family and community outreach events
-Social service referrals and resources
-On-site support staff to help students and parents/guardians navigate school and community arenas
