Equity AND Excellence in Education
WINNER: Together for Tomorrow School Improvement Challenge Winners
The United Way of Greater Duluth established the Delegation for Educational Outcomes (Delegation): a strategic approach to facilitate community-based solutions that promote on-time graduation and reduce the achievement gap. The Delegation brings together significant community stakeholders that collaborate with the Duluth Public Schools to expand a unique community school model throughout the District. Duluth's model emphasizes family and neighborhood involvement that builds a sense of school/community belonging and ownership. Inclusive, evidence-based interventions connect the school day with out-of-school-time programs and build academic and social/emotional skills.
