How schools create homeschool connections

Driven by a commitment to serve all students, or by a desire to maximize state funding, some districts are offering families that educate their children at home everything from free computers to curricular guidance.

Unique twists on school wellness

Students ease stress with stretches in school yoga sessions. In another district, students eat vegetables they’ve grown in a school garden. Elsewhere, more students eat healthy breakfasts they’ve grabbed from convenient to-go carts. This kind of innovation is evident across the country, as district leaders find new ways to promote health and wellness.
