School Justice Partnerships

For more than 50 years, NASBE has focused on supporting and sustaining evidence-based innovation through state policies and programs. Our principal objectives are to strengthen state leadership in education policymaking, advocate equality of access to educational opportunity, promote excellence in the education of all students, and ensure responsible lay governance of education.

As part of its involvement with the School-Justice Partnership Project, NASBE will work with state boards of education to design policies that help ensure schools can meet the intellectual and social needs of students and keep them out of the juvenile justice system. For this project, NASBE will also serve as a conduit for information exchange for the National Resource Center for School-Justice Collaboration, which includes fostering partnerships between education and judicial leaders across the country.
