The Center is an exciting next step in the essential work of revitalizing Central Falls. It is a vital component to bridge the performance gap in Central Falls and prepare our students to be successful participants and partners in their community. The McKenna Center will be home to student-centered learning opportunities and student support for the youth of our city and a first of its kind teacher professional development center. Along with meeting the goals of the Central Falls community and promoting the District’s core values of EQUITY, EMPOWERMENT, and EXCELLENCE, the Center’s overarching goal is to share findings, successes and challenges with other urban communities throughout Rhode Island and pilot replicable programs in urban education, community development and healthy communities.
