Inspired by leading research and the challenges of recent years, PSBA is empowering school boards to build communities that recognize the fundamental human desire to belong. We are expanding our commitment to strengthening communities beyond educational equity to include mental health & wellness, community partnerships, and dignity & belonging. Together, we can build resilient communities that meet the needs, respect the dignity, and warmly embrace every student in the commonwealth.

Please stay tuned as we continue to develop resources and identify engagement opportunities that focus on the needs and supports of students across the commonwealth.
