For decades communities have worked to improve student achievement through a piecemeal set of reforms and siloed set of systems and programs. These efforts have not led to the desired improvements in student achievement, calling for a dramatically different means of supporting student success.
To help drive student achievement througout the Quad Cities region, Achieve Quad Cities is working with our partners to:
Measure what matters: The Achieve partnership believes that using data as contructive tool is essential to better serve every child, student and adult in our community. The data warehouse team has been working hard with the area superintendents on creating a uniformed reporting method. The launch date is August 2014. The data provided will allow for a community wide report card to be shared across the region.
Identify Effective Practices: One of the central benefits of a region wide partnership is the wide net from which we can capture practices that are already working on our community. Through the analysis of objective data, we can identify effective practices and help spread them more broadly. We can also learn from other communities and national organizations such as the Lumina Foundation and the STRIVE network. Achieve works closely with these partners.
Align Community Resources: The goal is to align resources across sectors in a coordinated way to make sure that children, students & adult receive the programs, support & information to become lifelong learners in our community.
Get Involved! Volunteer today to change our community's future.
