Hi there, my name is Chandra Smith, and I am thrilled to be part of the Genesee Community. I grew up here as a child and moved back in 2019 with my husband and two children. I have been with Genesee Schools since 2021. When Genesee became a Community School, I eagerly stepped into the role of Community Outreach Coordinator. I am here to support our students, families and community as best as I can. If you have questions, ideas or would like information about resources, please reach out. I am looking forward to serving this community! Go Bulldogs!
We are excited to announce that from the beginning of the 23/24 school year, Genesee School became a Community School.
What is a Community School?
A community school model follows 4 key pillars. While each community school is unique, all include the four pillars in their planning and programming process. These pillars include integrated student supports, expanded and enriched learning time and opportunities, family and community engagement and collaborative leadership unique to our community.
What does a Community School look like in Genesee?

Offering students basic hygiene products, non-perishable food, school and clothing supplies through our Community Closet.
Doors opening for more grant opportunities.
How is the Community Outreach Coordinator position funded?
