The Community School Collaborative at Thomas Edison High School

The Community School Collaborative (CSC) is a joint project of Change Inc. and Guadalupe Alternative Programs (GAP) providing prevention, early intervention and mental health services at Edison High School.  The CSC is staffed by licensed mental health professionals, mental health practitioners who are supervised by board approved clinical supervisors and Community Cultural Specialists.   Students may be referred to the CSC due to emotions and behaviors that seem extreme or inhibit the student’s ability to be successful in school or at home.  Services are provided at school during the school day or during out-of-school time in the community and in-home.  School staff can make referrals and parents can request services by contacting the Edison social workers. 

The CSC staff can also be reached directly in room 308 or by calling 612-668-1312.  Jessica Vazquez is the Site Lead.    You can reach her at

The Edison Collaborative provides effective services to meet with unique needs of each student.
