Community Schools Program

Great Schools Partnership Community Schools Initiative (GSP) organizes community resources to improve neighborhood health and safety and student academic success.  These services are offered at certain public school locations.  These Community Schools enhance student learning and help build healthy communities. Through partnership with GSP, Friends of Literacy offers free classes for High School Equivalency, also called HiSET, at South Knoxville Elementary School.  These classes meet two nights a week in the evening, September through December and January through May.
