Ensuring Success in School
The Shriver Center Women's Law and Policy Project’s Ensuring Success in School Initiative addresses the educational and related needs of children and youths who are parents, expectant parents, or survivors of domestic or sexual violence to ensure their ability to stay in school, stay safe, and complete their education.
The Ensuring Success in School Act legislation promotes suucessful school completion by:
- enabling expectant and parenting students as well as student victims of domestic or sexual violence to succeed in school;
- providing guidance to school districts in responding to and alleviating the barriers to academic success for students who are parents, expectant parents, or survivors of domestic or sexual violence;
- encouraging the safe and meaningful involvement of parents of students.
