We are officially one week away from the first day of school for students! One of the many blessings of working in education is you get to start fresh every year. (This is true for both students and the adults who work with them.) While I firmly believe schools are ultimately the most accountable for learning, it goes without saying families play a pivotal role in student academic success. I get asked a lot about how families can help their students make the most of school, which I thought would be a good topic for this month’s column, especially since it will run so close to the day we start the new school year.
