Engaging experiences and quality programming equate to student learning and student achievement.  Investing in the human capital of our students and the people who serve them contribute to quality public education.

2.  Learning Communities
Students are not the only ones learning in public education.  Parents, teaching staff, support staff, administrators, and community members are all participants in the learning process and improving student achievement.
