What will it take

for marginalized students?
for marginalized students?
Facilitate leaders capacity to liberate marginalized students to pursue thriving, productive lives.
Collective Action Coalition
The focus of the Collective Action Coalition is to execute an action-agenda designed to engage a national collaborative of school leaders in advancing three strategic priorities which we’ll begin work on in 2019.
Develop Leader Talent
Our leaders often lack bench depth of talent that is necessary to reinforce the sustainability of their schools. We will identify resources to support current leaders and cultivate a talent pipeline to lead schools in marginalized communities.
We will create a high-quality leadership development initiative and talent pipeline designed to anchor a recruitment, growth and retention ecosystem to reinforce leader capacity and sustainability.
Codify Models of Excellence
Our leaders have created whole school and program models that address the needs of marginalized populations. We will document the models of success and identify opportunities for scale.
We will codify our models of excellence and promise, and create a framework for a student success model aligned to our target population and reflective of high-performing academic and holistic measures.
Spur School Expansion and Growth
Our leaders are eager to scale their models to serve a broader population of students. We will enable leaders of color to both expand existing schools and launch new schools.
We will expand existing and launch of new start charters led by people of color.
These school leaders volunteered four months of their time to participate in the development of the National Action Agenda.
