Full-Service Community Schools
Who We Are
The North Dakota Full-Service Community Schools (FSCS) is comprised of partners across various sectors who share the mission of supporting schools, students and families across the state.
What Is A Full-Service Community School?
Full-Service Community Schools are both a place and set of partnerships that serve as a hub to a neighborhood or community. Full-Service Community Schools partner with other organizations to provide a coordinated and integrated set of comprehensive supports.

Why Is The Full-Service Community School Model Important?
Not all students come to school ready to learn. Challenges such as hunger, behavioral health, access to early childhood education, and family engagement can be barriers to student success. Additionally, not all schools have the resources to provide for students and family needs. The FSCS model promotes partner collaboration, so schools don't' have to navigate these challenges alone.

Early Childhood Development
