Community Partners with Schools

“Community partnerships provide access to resources and services available to support staff, students, and families in the development and implementation of Healthy Schools initiatives.  Various organizations can deliver services within the school setting, including public health.” Ministry of Education: Foundations for a Healthy School.

Community Partners with Schools (COMPASS) - Simcoe County:

COMPASS is an initiative of the Child Youth and Family Services Coalition of Simcoe County.

Eight COMPASS teams exist across Simcoe County, linking schools with local providers of school programs and services, including:

  • Parenting supports
  • Child and youth mental health
  • Child protection
  • Health
  • Youth justice
  • Community recreation and more.
Participation in COMPASS supports schools and community partners to work together to best serve children, youth and families.  Meetings are held regularly during the school year.  Please contact the Coalition if you would like more information or to be connected to your local COMPASS team.
