• Community

    The Anoka-Hennepin School District serves all or part of 13 different cities and townships, and each has its own unique needs and characteristics. Healthy, vibrant communities rely on a strong local economy and happy, connected residents. Community Education supports both! Community Education maximizes taxpayer investments in K-12 education by extending learning opportunities for residents of all ages, and by using school facilities year-round.

    Whether it's providing non-profit organizations, clubs and groups with access to school facilities or supporting our schools and communities by coordinating the time, energy and talents of volunteers - Community Education strives to offer each community the services it needs to stay healthy and connected.
    • Community pools: Community Education coordinates swimming lessons and hosts open swim sessions for children and adults.

    • Facility use: Community Education schedules and manages community use of all elementary and middle school buildings and athletic fields before- and after-school, and on the weekends. High school building use is managed by each specific high school.

    • Flyer distribution: Community organizations may distribute news through schools by collaborating with Community Education.

    • Parent involvement: Anoka-Hennepin Parent Involvement promotes partnerships, based on the belief that parents are their children's most important teacher.

    • Parent-teacher organizations (PTOs) and booster clubs: Community Education maintains hundreds of partnerships with cities, counties and agencies as one way to stretch resources while providing programs efficiently and effectively.

    • Volunteer opportunities: Community Education employs staff at each Anoka-Hennepin School to schedule and coordinate the time, energy and talents of dedicated community members hoping to serve our schools and our communities.
