Welcome Back to School 2021

This year, more than ever, we can appreciate the joy of walking into classrooms filled with students, led by dedicated and talented teachers. As students and educators return to the classroom, please join us in fostering a culture of belonging, connection, and hope.

Watch Board of Regents Chancellor Lester W. Young, Jr. and Commissioner Betty A. Rosa’s Back to School video message and read their letters to educators and families.
