The Partnership

Four children readingEastern Ohio Education Partnership is a 501(c)(3) designed to be the backbone organization that brings sectors of the community together to create a common agenda, share data, and reinforce and strengthen existing education initiatives that help increase student outcomes from preschool through postsecondary education. As the backbone organization, we are charged with being the lead facilitator, community liaison, and organizer; creating and publicizing a communications plan; and collecting, analyzing, and aggregating data to assure individual programs are benefiting our students.

The Partnership has created a consortium of fifty community leaders that represent education from preschool to postsecondary, business, nonprofit, foundation, and social service agencies. These partners will focus on four critical student areas of transition: preschool to Kindergarten (Kindergarten Readiness), 3rd to 4th grade (3rd Grade Reading Proficiency), 8th to 9th grade (8th Grade Mathematics Proficiency), and high school to postsecondary (Postsecondary/Career Readiness). Four working groups, or Change Networks, will form, each focusing on a content area. These Change Networks, through a process called Collective Impact, (a long-term commitment from different sectors focusing on a common agenda), will discover existing programs that focus on our four common goals, and organize individuals doing the work to create a shared set of measurable goals around a long-term process of social change. By collectively organizing individual programs, these individual programs will have access to a community of shared resources, and a common set of measurable goals.
