The Better Together Challenge

Breaking down the barriers that interfere with supportive, safe, and inclusive relationships among students at school is an important goal for educators, parents, and students. Although important, this goal may be overlooked when attention is directed to other priorities. This is problematic because barriers to inclusion interfere with achieving other educational goals. The Better Together Challenge supports students and teachers in Arizona's middle and high schools in creating environments that are safe, inclusive, and equitable for all students. Through this effort, we promote the idea that we are better together and that positive and inclusive school relationships help students thrive in the classroom and beyond.

The Better Together Challenge was developed by the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics (SSFD) at Arizona State University (ASU) to work in partnership with Arizona's middle and high schools to support students' success.
