Strategic Pillars

Elevating Teachers

Research shows that having excellent teachers in the classroom is the most critical lever for student achievement. To that end, we will support teacher recruitment, retention, and morale, and position Greenville as a community that deeply values and champions public school education.

Engaging Communities

Public education impacts every aspect of our social fabric. As such, we will serve as a convener, innovator, and thought partner at a systems level to connect with people and ideas in improving educational attainment and community outcomes.

Empower Advocates

Much of what happens in our classrooms is determined by policies enacted at the local, state, and federal level. For this reason, we will pursue an advocacy agenda that supports our mission and builds a space for supporters to learn, engage, and lift their voices in support of public education.
