Citywide Advisory Council

  • Role of the Council

    The Community Education Citywide Advisory Council (CWAC) role is to advise on policy, process, programs and budgets that promote the value of community education and its role in academic achievement. The CWAC sees its role as connecting community to schools and schools to the community.

    Purpose of the Council

    As schools become the center of their community, the CWAC must ensure that students have the supportive environments necessary to learn and succeed. Community Education is committed to improve student learning and achievement by building stronger families and healthier communities. Community Education programs and services fully support children’s learning and development by uniting the most important influences in children’s lives: schools, family, and community. Community Education provides a full-service approach to education by addressing the whole child in the context of the family, including physical, social, and emotional factors as well as academic needs.
