Auer Avenue Community School is one of twelve Milwaukee Public Schools who are currently a part of the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership. The Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership (MCSP) is a collective strategy to transform schools into a place where students, families, staff, and the surrounding community can work together to ensure every student is successful.
Community Schools are a proven model to increase a school’s capacity to better engage and align partnerships centered on the self-identified, real-time priorities of schools and communities.
Community Schools place the focus on the whole child by providing academic supports, social and emotional learning, health and wellness, family and community engagement, and a safe and supportive climate.
Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership’s Core Values:
Shared Leadership: Transform how schools make decisions by engaging diverse stakeholders to participate in the development and ownership of local strategies.
Equity: Transform how schools collect and use data; recruit, align and manage partnerships and resources to ensure students, families and staff have the resources they need to be successful.
Cultural Relevance: Transform how schools relate and interact with their students, families and community in a more culturally relevant and restorative way leading to positive school cultures, strong relational trust, and high quality teaching.
Auer Avenue Community School is partnered with THE MILWAUKEE URBAN LEAGUE.
The Milwaukee Urban League leads through education, employment, and advocacy to achieve economic vibrancy and equal access to all industries and disciplines that position African Americans to create wealth and live a better quality of life.
Milwaukee Urban League’s vision is to ensure that Wisconsin becomes a top 10 place for African Americans to live and thrive and where the greater Milwaukee area becomes a leader in education and socioeconomic inclusion.
