Pipeline Services

North Dakota Full-Service Community Schools are both a place and a set of partnerships that provide coordinated and comprehensive supports to students and families. These supports have been identified to align with eight “pipelines” that are known to improve student, family and community outcomes.

A Full-Service Community School coordinates comprehensive supports for students and families through partnerships in the following pipeline service ares:

Learning programs, particularly impacting children from birth to age 5, that impact long-term social, cognitive, emotional, or physical development.
Evidence-based learning programs that provide opportunities for supplemental support for students to improve their skills and academic outcomes.
Strategies that elevate the role of family as a key partner actively contributing to student’s educational experiences and success.
Services and supports that improve access to programs that promote family stability while aligning goals across community and school.
