Objective 2: Continue to inform the discussion of the Minority Achievement Gap and promote strategies to narrow the gap.
Objective 3: Continue to promote parent advocacy, foster student empowerment, family awareness of benefits of social integration of children, and encourage community engagement in our schools and preschools.
