Community Partners

AUSL recognizes that a child’s development and learning do not, and should not, begin and end when they walk through the doors of the school. In addition to forming strong relationships with parents and community members, AUSL establishes partnerships with many community-based organizations and local agencies that provide vital in-school and out-of-school services to our students.
