Dear Starfish Partners,
We are honored to welcome you to the EAB community! As we work to get to know you, we want to begin by sharing some helpful resources (in addition to those resources you already have today) —including our Student Success Best Practice Library and Equity Resource Center. I hope you bookmark these pages and return to them often.
We look forward to working together to continue to serve and support your students, schools, and communities.
Vice President, Technology Partner Success
