Welcome to Rebuild America's Schools
REBUILD AMERICA’S SCHOOLS MISSION:
Rebuild America’s Schools is a coalition of national organizations and
school districts working to create federal support to help local communities build, renovate and modernize schools. The purpose of Rebuild America’s Schools is to build national and local support for federal school infrastructure initiatives. Rebuild America’s Schools contends that federal partnerships are necessary as local communities struggle to finance, build and modernize school facilities to address the economic and educational challenges of the 21st Century.
Rebuild America’s Schools has two immediate objectives:
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL!
While statistics and facts provide essential information, personal stories are one of the most effective ways to portray the impact of school facility conditions on our children and our communities. Our nation's children deserve modern schools. If you or a member of your family has personal experience with the need for a new or modernized school, please share your story with us. None of the personal information you provide will be used publicly without your prior consent. As all of our resources are devoted to securing federal support for the efforts of local communities to build, renovate and modernize school facilities, we are unable to respond individually to the stories your submit.
