Spread the Word: Communicate Your Commitment to RISE

Your school and district play a vital role in partnering with staff and the community to reduce educator burnout and foster the development of confident, happy kids who excel socially, emotionally, and academically.

One important step in getting started with the RISE Initiative is to build awareness and cultivate support for your commitment to improving the social-emotional health of students and staff at your school. Through broad communications with parents, district leaders, and key stakeholders, you can build a strong network of champions that can help drive your success from day one. 

Use the promotional tools below with families, colleagues, district leaders, and community members to get others excited about creating a healthier campus.
