NASBE joins with 30 National Organizations Commit to Ensuring State Leaders to Prioritize School Climate


Alexandria, VA – As schools and communities seek to reinvent and recover in the midst of an active intersecting medical, economic, and racial crises, the time is ripe for state-level leaders to take an active role in helping schools create a positive learning environment for all students and teachers, both in-person and virtually.

State leaders are uniquely positioned to promote a healthy school climate by defining a state-wide vision for school climate, while supporting districts and schools to measure, improve, and establish a school climate learning agenda. NASBE signed a letter of support along with 30 national organizations committing to ensuring school climate is prioritized in state education improvement priorities, pandemic recovery, and efforts to advance social mobility and racial justice.

“State boards of education have an important role to play in ensuring that students, school staff, families, and communities have welcoming, supportive, positive school climates to learn, thrive, and grow in,” says NASBE President and CEO Robert Hull. NASBE is proud to support this collaborative effort to promote action recommendations, highlight what’s working in states, and connect decisionmakers to useful tools to make positive improvements for kids.”

NASBE serves as the only membership organization for state boards of education. A nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, NASBE elevates state board members’ voices in national and state policymaking, facilitates the exchange of informed ideas, and supports members in advancing equity and excellence in public education for students of all races, genders, and circumstances.
