Rigorous curricula, high standards, and meaningful accountability

We are focused on preparing all students for college, career, and community.

We are working to transform schools to better understand the connection between equity and their students’ readiness to meet rigorous college and career-ready standards.

Students need instructional materials that offer mirrors of their own experiences—validating them, their families, and their cultures—and windows into new worlds and communities they have not yet imagined. They also need standards-aligned instruction that challenges them with grade-level material. We are also focused on ensuring that local, state, and federal policies hold us accountable for the readiness of all students for college, career, and community.
