We're holding ourselves accountable for our kids from cradle to career. By focusing on these six educational milestones, we are for the first time bringing together county-wide partners to create county-wide solutions for our students at every stage of their educational journey.
The Marin Promise Partnership is committed to measuring each milestone for the entire population of Marin, not just by program or school, but across Marin County. From this perspective we can see how our County’s children are performing at each benchmark. The Marin Promise Partnership is here to help capture and analyze the data; to look at the big picture and to take even greater action to narrow the educational gap - so all of our children have the same opportunity for college and career.
While each Milestone is measured on its own it does not exist in a vacuum. Achievement of every Milestone has a direct impact on those that follow, if a child misses one they are much more likely to miss future Milestones, leaving them further and further behind their peers.
By aligning efforts across Milestones the Partnership seeks to ensure that every child has the support they need to succeed at every step of the journey.
We have just begun the process of working to align the amazing work being done across Marin by organizations of all sizes. As more and more of these efforts align we will be able to collaboratively understand the underlying issues and target resources to best meet the needs of Marin's students.
Some of these efforts are included in this update but know that aligning the work is an ongoing process, one that is still in its early stages. Please contact us if there are programs or interventions that we should include in the next update of this report.
With your help we truly can keep Marin's promise to each and every one of our students.
