That each and every student in the metropolitan area receive an exceptional education that provides multiple pathways into meangingful careers and a high quality of life in the region and beyond through partnerships with families, schools, and community.
SHARED PRINCIPLES & FOCUS
PRE-K TO GRADE 3
Student achievement is headed in the right direction. Grade 3 NeSA scores show steady gains in student proficiency. As performance improves, the gap between children in poverty and those who are not continues to close. We have a long way to go but the outlook for children PreK–3 is much improved.
GRADES 8 –11
Student outcomes gradually trend down starting in middle school. In Grade 8, NeSA reading gains are offset as students lose ground in math. By grade 11, the achievement gap widens further in both reading and math. Poor proficiency indicates the region’s high school graduates need better preparation for college and career.
WE KNOW WORKING TOGETHER GETS BETTER RESULTS.
Connecting our education and community systems creates a powerful circle of support. With school, family and community engaged,we have more resources for student success. Enhancing the student experience helps everyone.
