Our students spend the majority of their formative years in the classroom. How are we meeting their needs and fostering their growth? Students deserve modern/state of the art/well-funded facilities that allow for the demands of academics and extracurriculars.
The school-to-prison pipeline affects us all. Students with disciplinary concerns should not be expected to fill in a jail cell more than we can set them up to walk across the graduation stage. Restorative discipline offers the opportunity to collectively care and work with our students to become responsible citizens.
Students do not navigate school alone and shouldn’t. Parents, families, and community leaders are our valued partners in building the positive learning environment for students to thrive.
