School Toolkit

On this page, you will find documents to share with your school staff and families. School staff resources are organized by roles: administration, attendance staff, community agencies, staff for intervention, and teachers. Family resources are available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, and Burmese. Please use these resources word for word or tailor to match your school culture and needs, such as including your campus or district logos.

To inspire today’s youth, we teamed up with local Grammy award-nominated artist SaulPaul to produce the #ACEit hip-hop music video. We encourage you to promote the video in class, in other messaging to students and families, and on your social media platforms.
