Public Schools       



Child Opportunity Zone (COZ)

Rhode Island’s Child Opportunity Zones (COZs) are a full-service, community school model of school-linked family centers that bring schools, families and communities together to promote success in school for all children and youth.

   COZs are welcoming places in or near schools where families can access education, health and social service programs, supports and referrals to address barriers to student achievement at the highest levels. Each COZ bases its coordinated system of services, programs and supports on the individual needs and resources of its schools, families and community.
