MSHSL Seeks Student Participation for “Together We Make a Difference” Initiative

Educational leadership organizations from across the state have committed their support to an action plan that is designed to provide the opportunity for all students to attend school, learn and participate, in safe and respectful environments free from racial, gender and religious harm. Broad student participation is important and elevating their voices in this work is paramount to its success.
