On November 21, 2011, the City of San Pablo City Council passed a resolution to develop a San Pablo Full Service Community Schools (FSCS) Initiative with the goal of eventually transforming all schools in the City into Full Service Community Schools. In a full service community school (community school) the school district, city, county, community-based organizations, businesses, families and philanthropists form a strong and transparent partnership to jointly address the identified needs of students, families and the community in a comprehensive, integrated and accountable way. They share leadership, work towards a common vision and agenda, and share responsibility for results.

The City of San Pablo’s Youth, Schools and Community Partnerships Division is aligned philosophically and programmatically with the San Pablo Beacon Community Schools Initiative. The 2015-2019 Strategic Work Plan identifies how funding will be redirected to financially support the personnel, programs, and services needed to build San Pablo’s schools into comprehensive community schools. San Pablo Team for Youth (SPTFY) is the funding mechanism for developing and deploying youth services that support the mission of San Pablo's Beacon Community Schools Initiative.
