STRONG PUBLIC SCHOOLS, STRONG COMMUNITIES.
Schools are community institutions- and because K-12 education alone cannot eradicate poverty, schools should support wrap around services students and families need to thrive.
- Early Childhood. We support high quality early childhood/preschool programs because they are proven to improve student outcomes. We believe that all students should have equitable access to free and full day kindergarten, especially those most impacted by poverty.
- Community Supports. Students are better able to achieve when they and their families can access basic health/dental care, mentoring, English language classes and more at school.
