The Madison West High Area Collaborative is an educational barriers relief effort for the West High School attendance area. As a collaborative of school staff, PTO/PFO’s and community members representing all schools within the West High attendance area, our values consist¬†of: every student deserves food, every student deserves access to education, every student deserves access to health, every student deserves access to a place to lay their head. We need to consistently¬†look at barriers that systems create for our families including our education system. We value connection to our families and partnership with our community programs. We will continuously¬†listen to our families, learn from our families, find creative strategies and abolish the white power systems that harm our families of color.
