How a Community School Works

Abigail Gomes is a community school site manager at Sheridan Preparatory Academy in Albany, NY. She explains how a community school works to support the needs of families in the community.

"We shouldn’t have to fight so hard for things children should have,” said Abigail Gomes, community schools site coordinator and a member of Albany Public School United Employees. “They’re supposed to have adults caring for them. They’re supposed to have adults loving them."
