Schools and districts cannot do this work alone. To address persistent achievement gaps and develop sustainable education reform at scale requires the combined commitment, efforts, and investment of an entire community. We envision a high-functioning, "smart" district with a range of civic and community partners that provides a broad network of opportunities and supports to young people inside and outside of school. We call this vision a “smart education system.”
Through grants and contracts, we collaborate with a wide variety of partners to work toward this vision through research; technical assistance to districts, communities, and their partners; and strategic communications.
