Technical assistance is available to help school districts, school boards, community advocates, and community coalitions assess needs, develop advocacy strategies, address enforcement issues, establish alternative to suspension or youth cessation programs, develop processes for monitoring and evaluating the policy, or on other issues.

We can link school administrators interested in adopting this policy - including superintendents, board members, and principals - with their peers in school districts that have successfully done so. We can also put leaders whoa re interested in addressing this issue in touch with others in their community so that they can join forces, share ideas, and work together.
