Title: Call to Action: Student Support Staff: Moving in New Directions through School Improvement

Description: As we have reported widely, our Center?s policy and program analyses make it clear that student support staff are not appropriately accounted for in school improvement planning and implementation. For the most part, support staff are absent from the school tables where school improvement plans and decisions are made. In addition, discussion of the roles and functions of support staff and how they should work together tend not to reflect the context of the type of system building required for comprehensive school improvement. For the most part, the unfortunate reality is that student support staff are missing in action when it comes to school improvement.
