WHAT WE DO
Beginning with the five founding schools of the 99 Accelerator in 2015, our member network has grown to more than 20 leaders representing 10 networks and 23 schools, serving nearly 15,000 students.
We believe that people come before program; that schools are only as good as the people that run them; that our school and classroom leaders are our best resources; and that our leaders shouldn’t have to work in isolation.
Our schools are only as strong as the leaders and teachers who lead them. We work with a school and organization’s highest level of decision-makers. We work together to identify opportunities for individual growth, development, and sustainability by providing a network of peer support, encouragement, and mentoring between members.
Our leaders drive and design the cohort framework and modules based on their needs and strengths. In addition, our facilitators work with individual teams to address and solve unique organizational needs.
PLACE-BASED COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
Our regionally-based cohorts link committed leaders to one another to build trust, share resources and knowledge, and leverage their collective experience and expertise to transform policy, strengthen academic and operations quality, provide equitable access for all students, and make available external resources otherwise unavailable to their communities.
