The Tulsa Area Community Schools Initiative (TACSI) provides leadership and influence to engage local communities in creating and sustaining community schools that support academic success and strengthen children, families, and communities.
The best outcomes for students will be realized when these conditions for learning are in place:
The school has a core instructional program with qualified teachers, a challenging curriculum, and high standards and expectations for students.
Students are motivated and engaged in learning--both in school and in community settings, during and after school.
The basic physical, mental, and emotional health needs of young people and their families are recognized and addressed
Mutual respect and effective collaboration exist among parents, families, and school staff.
Community engagement and school efforts promote a school climate that is safe, supportive, and respectful, and connects students to a broader learning community.
Early childhood development is fostered through high-quality, comprehensive programs that nurture learning and development.
