  • Interrupt the “school to prison pipeline” – policies and practices that are directly and indirectly pushing the most at-risk students out of school and on a pathway to the juvenile and criminal justice systems.
  • Engage families as partners in meaningful ways.
  • Build the capacity of diverse teams that are more reflective of our students.
