With the release of the latest issue of Principal Connections, Editor Deirdre Kinsella Biss provides a sneak preview of what you can expect in our magazine this month.
Greater equity for our students means greater student success. Helping students reach their maximum potential requires being aware of the barriers that exist in our schools and taking action to remove them. Recognizing the importance of our students’ identity, their needs, their community and their well-being is vital to supporting their growth. As Catholic leaders we are called to make our schools safe, equitable learning places. So, the type of relationships we form, the learning environment we create, the curriculum we teach, and the policies we implement all matter significantly.
