When it comes to learning, having the right kind of support inside and outside of the classroom is important. This is why schools all over Idaho are taking part in a new strategy known as community schools to help aid their students.

Community schools work with local partners to help ensure students have what they need to succeed, whether that's food, clothing, school items or other kinds of care.
