How We Work


Collaborating can ensure college and career readiness for every Nevada student.

We engage with families, educators, education leaders, and community stakeholders in service of more kids graduating from high school college and career ready. Change in education does not happen through one organization alone; rather, it is a collaborative effort bringing together different people, teams, and representatives from across our communities to bring forward ideas, solutions, and conversations that will impact every kid in Nevada.
