A CROSS-SECTOR CRADLE TO CAREER NETWORK

Marin Promise Partnership believes that every child in Marin can reach his/her full educational potential regardless of race/ethnicity or income. This is why more than 40 schools, nonprofits, businesses, and government agencies have come together as a cross-sector partnership to address Marin county’s persistent and systemic educational inequities. With the support of back-bone team staff, Partners promise that by 2028 they will have closed educational equity gaps at every stage along a child’s cradle to career educational journey. Using the Strive Together collective impact framework, Partners are aligning around a common vision, using data to hold each other accountable, taking collective action, and advocating for equitable, systemic change. Help us keep our Promise to our kids. Join the Partnership. And together we can ensure that each and every child in Marin can meet the educational milestones that are critical to achieving a bright and successful future.

Marin is a county of 250,000 people. We enjoy incredible beauty and are fortunate to be the wealthiest, healthiest, best educated county in the state.

However, we also have the greatest educational achievement gap in California. Too many students, especially English language learners and those from low income, African American and Hispanic/Latinx families do not have the support they need to meet the milestones that we've agreed are critical to achieving a bright and successful future.

Over the last 10 years, the achievement gap between low-income and higher income students has closed only slightly. We need to significantly accelerate change for our students who are furthest from opportunity.

The annual Cradle to Career Report includes a description of the Partnership’s cradle to career collective impact approach, a data-driven progress report, and an updated list of Partner agencies, funders and community supporters. Detailed data from this report can also be accessed by clicking here to visit the online report card or here so see the detailed data that can be disaggregated by school, race, and income.

We have made a promise that, by 2028, when our current First Graders graduate from high school, we will have closed the educational gaps and equity will be a reality.

Join the Partnership’s growing network of over 40 school administrators, nonprofit directors, community leaders, government officials, educators, CEOs and funders.

I believe that Marin Promise is the answer we have been waiting for - using a proven, successful model of collaboration and data-driven decision-making to make real system-wide change. We need to rethink ‘business as usual’ because it isn’t working.
