Current Outlook

Research strongly shows that a long term strategy where families, schools, and communities work together will be required to equip our students with 21st century skills that they will need to experience academic, social, and economic success. The Initiative strategies and related impact areas have been selected as there is strong evidence that demonstrates a positive correlation between each as they relate to future educational and vocational success. In partnership with the community, the Initiative is incorporating increased focus and attention on the identified impact areas. View the list of participating schools/districts.

The initiative is a mechanism to align interests and resources to enhance current educational practices. Our goal is that by the year 2020, the efforts of the Initiative will be seamlessly interwoven into the academic and educational experience.
