Core Values

WE PARTNER WITH COMMUNITIES TO EMPOWER EDUCATORS, HELPING GET THE SCHOOLS THEY WANT FOR STUDENTS TO SUCCEED AT SCHOOL AND LIFE.

Our core values guide everything we do.

Ambitious

We dream big. We operate with optimism about the solvability of educational inequity and act with both urgency and a long-term view.

Find a Way

We are determined to find solutions to every challenge we face. We build on our failures to continuously learn, improve, and seek better and smarter ways to work together and achieve our goals.

Empowering

We believe that empowering people to think critically and act for themselves creates successful systems, and we are ready to adjust course (while maintaining high standards of excellence) to help ensure that we work with empowered partners.

People-Centered

We focus on people and equity and are eager to work with diverse stakeholders. Our work is based on the fundamental belief that systems have to work for all of the people involved without compromising quality.

Integrity

We prioritize candor and decisiveness because we care about the work so deeply. We have honest dialogue, are comfortable without consensus, and make decisions through transparent processes.
