Services will continue to be provided in the area of understanding how to better meet the needs of our students and parents in poverty. Workshops and trainings can be provided specifically on understanding mindsets of the economic classes, research-based strategies for classroom and building structures as well as learning structures, working with parents, and enhancing individual student resources. Trainings are available on a community-wide approach to supporting individuals, organizations, and systems to succeed through resource development. And the Poverty Simulation has participants take on roles of families under or near the poverty line, getting hands-on experience what it is like to try and meet day-to-day needs for a ‘month.’ Schools can’t tackle poverty all by themselves, it takes a community-wide approach to create sustainable communities.
