Over the summer it was announced by the city that nine schools would be transformed into “community schools.” Not only would these buildings serve the educational purposes of the students, but they would begin to service the needs of the surrounding community.
Southwark Elementary and South Philadelphia High School are the two schools in these neighborhoods that were selected. To begin making these neighborhood improvements, a survey has been released to get the community to weigh in on what services would be beneficial to the area.
The survey lists 20 possibilities, including things like mental health services, arts opportunities, computer access, vision screenings and more. There are different surveys for parents, students and community members.
