|Welcome to the
Full-service Schools Roundtable!
The Full-service Schools Roundtable is working to advance the healthy development and academic success of students through integrated school-community partnerships.
Building on the work of several successful initiatives, the Roundtable is working to bring the full-service school model to scale in Boston and throughout Massachusetts. To achieve this goal, we sponsor convenings that highlight the benefits of full-service schools; commission and release research and policy reports; and promote policies that support the development of full-service schools throughout our city and Commonwealth.

On February 2, 2012, The Full-service Schools Roundtable and Boston Public Schools jointly released Schools at the Hub: Community Partnerships in the Boston Public Schools, the first report of its kind, which presents the results of a survey administered to all schools at the end of the 2009-2010 school year. With 93% of schools responding, the report provides extensive baseline data about the types and extent of partnerships providing supports to students and families. The report also cites some unevenness in partnerships across schools and calls for greater district involvement to ensure equity and accountability.
