Now adding to their board:
Schools That Can is a network of high-performing inner-city schools serving low-income communities. Currently there are 115 schools in 15 cities serving 48,000 children in their network. Their mission is “collaborating to grow seats of quality education.” They do this by building local regional councils that use their methodologies to build collaboration among urban schools to grow and sustain quality seats.
In short, In Schools that Can’s words: It is their intent to increase the number of high quality schools and expand their network of schools in low-income areas to reach a tipping point in each city where an amazing education for all students, regardless of income level, becomes the norm.
Board meets three early evenings a year midtown; and once at their annual Forum in whichever city the Forum is being held. Financial commitment is medium. Current board, which is listed on website, includes a mix of well-regarded education and financial service professionals, among others.
