Specifically, we work to MOBILIZE and SUPPORT a collective partnership of stakeholders focused on improving educational outcomes by leveraging student-level data, community expertise and continuous improvement best practices to
  • Measure What Matters
  • Identify Best Practices
  • Spread What Works
A key component to a successful community includes academic achievement and the safety and well-being of its children and youth. When ALL children and youth succeed, our community succeeds. Why? Because children and youth become our workforce, leaders and community members, and it's no secret that communities who have a talented workforce attract and retain employers. With jobs, income, benefits, etc., families are able to live and contribute to a better quality of life. This IS our true north. Success for EVERY young person - Cradle to Career.
