Scholars and educators are driven by the collaborative work of their peers and hold each other accountable. Families are empowered as school leaders and leveraged as experts of their children's’ needs. Educators and school leaders collaboratively build a career and college readiness curriculum for students and families. Scholars, educators, and families build trusting relationships to collaborate as equal partners in the students’ learning process.
