Dear Education Champion:
As we reflect on the whirlwind of trauma that our educators, families, students, and communities have endured this last year, we ask that you take a few seconds to take a deep breath.
We recognize that at this very moment, there is an extraordinary amount of work being done to ensure the safety of our educators and students as schools across California and the nation continue to reopen. We applaud the efforts of districts like the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). They have taken the time and made it a priority to ensure our communities have the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. Their highly thoughtful and intentional plan and its execution has not gone unnoticed. It serves as a fantastic example of how schools across the nation can authentically inform and engage their communities to support children’s education.
We also recognize that there is much more work needed to close the ever-widening academic gap. Our students deserve the very best opportunities to reach their dreams! As an organization, Families In Schools will continue to support districts and educators across California and beyond to engage their students’ families and communities to support their academic success.
