Grants to this Grantee
for strengthening state policy and local implementation of California’s school accountability system
Education Trust — West is a nonprofit that advocates for educational justice and the high academic achievement for students of color and those living in poverty. The nonprofit proposes to strengthen the state’s commitment to its new accountability and funding system as well as the system’s implementation. Education Trust — West will conduct original research on the impact of this system and help its partners get more and better input from the community for the setting of district goals.
for supporting efforts to build awareness of resource equity
The Education Trust, a national nonprofit that promotes high achievement for all students, will partner with Education Resource Strategies to build public will and capacity around educational resource equity. This grant will enable both organizations to deepen their efforts by engaging more communities, analyzing existing resource allocation, educating coalitions and groups about their findings, and responding to direct requests for assistance. When communities and individuals are engaged and empowered around issues of resource equity, they are better positioned to advocate for policy changes that reflect their interests and priorities.
