SUN stands for Schools Uniting Neighborhoods. The purpose of SUN Community Schools is to retain and support students by using the school as a community center and service delivery site before and after school, evenings, on weekends and during the summer. The SUN CS Lead Agency is the non-school entity that works with the principal and other school leadership at a given SUN CS school site to develop a collaborative partnership and deliver SUN CS services.

SUN CS core service categories include:

  • Academic Support and Skill Development (for youth and adults)
  • Family Engagement/Involvement
  • Community and Business Involvement
  • Service Integration (including linkages to bring in health, mental health and social services to meet the school’s needs)
  • Site Management

All of our schools have SUN programs, please contact the SUN Site Coordinator for your child’s school to learn about program dates and opportunities.
