SCIP: School & Community in Partnership




School & Communities in Partnership

School & Communities in Partnership (SCIP) is Hopkins School District's Family Services Collaborative. The SCIP Collaborative meets monthly to share information and look for opportunities to improve the community by working together to solve community problems that are beyond the scope of any single organization. Collaborative members are representatives from Hopkins School District, Hennepin County, cities, social service providers, apartment management companies and faith communities.

SCIP's Mission Is:

With a focus on both networking and action, the mission of SCIP is to collaboratively identify, prioritize, and communicate recommendations for action to address the human service needs of all citizens in the Hopkins School District and member communities.

SCIP 2013-2014 Meetings 

During the 2013-2014 School Year, School & Communities in Partnership will continue focusing on Creating a Vital Community. Vital communities are places where residents of all ages and abilities are actively engaged in civic life. The kind of community that is good for children and families is the same kind of community that is good for older residents. A vital community is dynamic, supportive and purposeful; and one that encourages connectivity.

SCIP Meetings are scheduled on seven Tuesdays during the 2013-2014 school year. The meetings are at Eisenhower Community Center, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. (in either room 223 or 233) 1001 Highway 7, Hopkins, MN 55305.
Bring a colleague, a bag lunch and come prepared to contribute, learn and share.
