• FILM SYNOPSIS •

Created by Nebraska Loves Public Schools, It Takes a Community explores how community partnerships provide students with greater access to educational opportunities and how engagement with our public schools helps ensure the vitality of our state.

There are many different factors that go into the education of a child. Although there is no silver bullet when it comes to solving the achievement gap, a good place to start is ensuring that all students have equal access to supplemental learning opportunities in order to reach their full academic growth and development. But schools can’t do it alone.

Education must become an inclusive process in which each member of the community has an important role in contributing to opportunity equality so that each child has a chance to succeed in academics and in life. When students have basic needs met, nurturing relationships with adults who care, and access to educational opportunities both inside the classroom and out in the community, the path to success becomes more attainable and the future looks brighter for everyone. When students and schools succeed, the community thrives.


Special thanks to Hastings Public Schools and its partners for the support of this program.
