Building a Community of Practice among school districts dedicated to educating the whole child
Bringing together leading partners in practice, policy, and research
Pursuing a long-term strategy to scale and sustain impactful change
Why We Exist
To raise the aspirations of our education system, and the expectations and capacity of local communities, to prepare all young people (especially those furthest from opportunity) for future success in college, career, and civic engagement
A partnership among organizations dedicated to educating the whole child, while unifying the field around a shared vision and common agenda to more equitably and holistically prepare CA youth and strengthen the CA economy
We support school districts to operationalize their Graduate Profiles in a way that holds the district and community collectively accountable for assuring that every student develops and demonstrates the articulated outcomes
Scaling Student Success is a collaboration among organizations with varied expertise, each well-positioned to play a critical role in advancing the common agenda. The 10 practice partners have expertise in all stages of creating and operationalizing a Graduate Profile, including those with demonstrated success in building capacity of teachers and coaching leaders:
Scaling Student Success nurtures a vibrant Community of Practice among school districts committed to creating and operationalizing their respective Graduate Profiles and holding themselves collectively accountable for assuring that each and every student has an opportunity to develop and demonstrate competency. The participants co-design the Community of Practice, prioritizing cross-sharing, cross-learning, growth, and continuous improvement.
Each year, we will add another cohort of districts, growing from dozens to hundreds of districts, eventually reaching every corner of the state.
COHORT 1 (2019-20)
Prior to the launch of Scaling Student Success, the eight (8) pioneering school districts in Cohort 1 had already created their respective Graduate Profiles and were taking steps toward operationalization. We are eager to support their efforts, embrace their lessons learned, and build on their success.
