Highlighting these schools and other ASD schools that are changing the odds for students was exhilarating in and of itself. This is why we exist—to partner in the dramatic improvement of Priority schools that have historically failed to give students a fair shot at succeeding. We lean in with higher expectations, accountability, student-centered decision-making, instruction and support services by educators and community partners who are living out families’ goals for their children – justice for every student in their schools and in their lives.
