English school boards and communities are embracing the CLC approach to school- community improvement as a strategy that promotes
student engagement and success. By developing purposeful partnerships, students, families and communities have increased access to activities and
resources. The recent addition of nine new CLC schools highlights the commitment of our school board leaders to the community school strategy, which integrates academics,
family support, as well as youth and community development. Some CLC schools are also expanding regionally, becoming multi-site CLCs with common
partners and sharing similar challenges. An example of this would be the expansion of ETSBʼs Richmond & Region CLC to include Drummondville Elementary
and Asbestos-Danville-Shipton (ADS) Elementary.
