Working together to help students succeed

We invest in partnerships between networks of schools and school support organizations, working together to solve common problems by using evidence-based interventions that best fit their needs and data-driven continuous learning—where schools use data to identify a problem, select a strategy to address the problem, set a target for improvement, and iterate to make the approach more effective and improve student achievement.

While each network decides what approach will work best to address their biggest challenges, there are two things successful networks share in common—a commitment to continuous learning and improvement, and a focus on using indicators proven to predict students’ learning, progress, and success.

The networks for school improvement will be selected through an open and competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) process, which will be launched in January 2018. Schools will be joined together through intermediary organizations—which could include non-profits, districts, and charter management organizations.
