Harding Elementary is a community school.
Our community school director is Mrs. Shanna Schumacher. You can find out more information about Mrs. Schumacher on her teacher page.
A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships that help address health, wellness and the social needs of its students, families and surrounding neighborhood. The community schools model is a strategy that organizes school and community resources around student success.
Harding's community school lead partner is the YMCA of Greater Erie and our corporate partner is Eriez Magnetics. The lead partner employs the community school director, which is made possible through Corporate Partner support.
The Lead Partner is a community-based organization that joins the school to manage and lead the work of developing and sustaining the community school model. This organization may provide some of the resources identified as high need at the school and works with the Community School Director to secure additional resources through other organizations.
The Corporate Partner commits to financial support and engages with the school through various opportunities, such as volunteering.
