Arlington is a wonderfully diverse community with wonderfully diverse children.Each of these children may need something a little different to achieve success.

Our students are coming from so many backgrounds — socio-economic, family, legal, scholastic, physical and mental health. 

Our schools need more resources to provide wrap-around services to address these various needs of the “whole child”. 

The good news is that we have community partners and non-profits in Arlington who are ready to help. And we already have a blueprint for such partnerships — Carlin Springs ES, Arlington’s Model Community School.

APS is already endorsing this approach in the Strategic Plan and the VA State Legislature is piloting support for this model.

Let’s partner for the success of all our students.
