New guide shows how school boards can help students and families

The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is a partner in the release of released a report called, “Partnerships, Not Pushouts: A Guide for School Board Members on Community Partnerships for Student Success” which highlights specific models of how school boards can better support students.

The new guide serves as a blueprint for board members who want to create a better-coordinated system of support for students and their families. The guide calls for a Personal Opportunity Plan that guarantees access to resources and opportunities schools can use.
