TNI@School:
Prince George's Community Schools Network

TNI@School: Prince George's Community Schools Network is one part of the highly-successful Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative (TNI), Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker's vision to achieve a Thriving Economy, Great Schools, Safe Neighborhoods, and High Quality Healthcare by targeting cross-governmental resources to neighborhoods that have significant needs.
Currently, TNI@School places targeted resources in forty (40) schools in the TNI Neighborhoods and is designed to remove barriers to academic success, support improved academic performance, and connect students and families to resources. Prince George's County Government, the Prince George's County Department of Social Services (PGCDSS), as the lead agency, Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS), and the nonprofit community have partnered to establish TNI@School. Network partners provide school-based services for students and families through referrals made by Prince George's County Department of Social Service's Community Resource Advocates (CRA), the cornerstone of TNI@School. The goal is to help ensure students are resilient, successful, and ready to learn.  
TNI@School has adopted The Coalition for Community Schools' framework. Community schools are both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. There are a number of national models and local community school initiatives that share a common set of principles: fostering strong partnerships, sharing accountability for results, setting high expectations, building on the community’s strengths, and embracing diversity and innovative solutions. More information about the Coalition and the community schools movement is available at www.communityschools.org

TNI@School Sites

Currently, TNI@School is home to 40 school communities, each strategically identified as part of the larger TNI movement. Each school is special.
The work of TNI@School reaches all levels of learning, from elementary through high school, with customized programming tailored to the most urgent needs of the school community, its students, and families. To this end, TNI@School fosters strategic foundations with community-based resources. Surveying, understanding, and partnering to meet the needs of our 40 schools is the goal. And making the schools centers for community, with tangible, sustainable resources that make a difference, is the mission.
