Parker Community School Zone 1


The community school is the delivery vehicle for the Community Education Department.  Community Education is a concept of lifelong opportunities providing citizens access to be involved in the educational process from the cradle to the grave.  The community school objectives are to cooperate with community agencies providing health, educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities to the school and communities.  Activities include use of school facilities; agency collaborations; youth at-risk programs; crime prevention; literacy enrichment; academic enhancement; recreational events; cultural arts; vocational classes; community services and civic involvement.
Service Area
In January of 2005, the Birmingham Board of Education merged the Brown and Jackson-Olin Community School program into Zone 1 Parker Community School.  The Zone concept is one to offer services to the community from a central area with satellite centers.  The program offerings have not changed.  Classes and activities are developed based on community needs.  The school and their service areas are identified below.
