Synopsis: Children dwell within the circle of family; families and schools reside within the larger circle of community. The Circle Project brings these concepts together into Full-Circle Schools, schools that realize that the goal of educational excellence cannot be met until the entire community is integrated into the circle of support for students and families. The present study proposes to create weak ties, a form of bridging social capital, between those families with children in the school system and area social service agencies.
