Schools are often on the front lines of addressing the disruptive effects of poverty, adversity, and trauma on children, but they cannot do it alone. Schools represent one important institution in a community among numerous others that can help prevent and reduce the negative impact of trauma on child health and development. The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) has identified a process to assist stakeholders in determining how best to align school and community programs so that they can build and sustain safe and supportive environments for all students to thrive. The session will present a process to assist education and other stakeholders to determine how best to align school and community initiatives in order to address the underlying challenges children face and create environments in which children can grow and succeed. Partner Build Grow is an evidence-informed partnership process to implement and sustain school-connected health and wellness programs. 

  1. Participants will be able to describe the multiple frameworks and systems that exist for aligning programs, practices, and policies across school and community contexts.
  2. Participants will be able to describe why strengthening school-community partnerships is a key to student and family success.
  3. Participants will be able to use the four steps that have helped stakeholders develop and strengthen school-connected programs that support student social-emotional wellbeing.
