Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Student Advocacy aims to improve the educational outcomes of at-risk students in our community by ensuring that students receive the necessary supports they are legally entitled to in school.

Student Advocacy works to ensure that all students in our community have access to an education that enables them to flourish. We do this by:

Providing educational advocacy services for individuals to improve school opportunities and enhance educational outcomes;

Empowering families to become better advocates for their children by offering technical assistance and training;

Collaborating with community organizations, parents and school districts in policy advocacy to make needed reforms in the education system

Student Advocacy's unique brand of educational advocacy utilizes a collaborative problem-solving approach. We do a comprehensive analysis of a student’s educational records and history, using the ever evolving landscape of law as our framework. We are student centric and child focused. We bring to the table an in-depth understanding of disabilities and systems, especially schools. Student Advocacy’s critical mission is to improve educational opportunities, protect educational rights and foster effective communication between families and school.

Since our founding over 35 years ago, Student Advocacy has tirelessly advocacted for over 35,000 students in our community.
