Community Partnership Schools

Three years ago, Leon County's Sabal Palm Elementary School became the area's first Community Partnership School. Under that designation, long-term partners provide a multitude of ancillary services so that a school's teachers and administrators can focus their efforts on education. To talk about how that concept has been working at Sabal Palm are: School Principal Anicia Robinson; Director of Community Partnerships Anna-Kay Hutchison; Dr. Daniel Van Durme, chief medical officer of the Florida State University College of Medicine; FAMU College of Education Dean Dr. Allyson Watson; and Gil Ziffer, now a board member with the Children's Home Society.
