Thrive Act: An Act Empowering Students and Schools to Thrive

H.495 (sponsored by Reps. Hawkins & Montaño)
S.246 (sponsored by Sens. Gomez, Comerford, & Miranda)

To support students, especially in high-poverty schools that have been most affected by the pandemic’s disruption, we need a better system of assessment and improvement that considers the whole child, and focuses on giving students and educators the tools and resources they need to succeed and thrive. The Thrive Act would replace the state’s failed approach to educational assessment with policies that will help all students to succeed and thrive.
