The Partnership has developed a Policy Advocacy Agenda to align Partners in their effort to change local, state, or national policy. The purpose of the Agenda is to accelerate progress in closing equity gaps across the Cradle to Career continuum.

Some of the identified policies address specific Milestone results while others cut across all 6 Milestones.

The current Agenda includes two Milestone related goals:

  • Increase the number of students who enter Kindergarten Ready to Learn because they have had access to a quality pre-school.

  • Increase the number of students who graduate High School College & Career Ready because they have successfully completed the UC/CSU curriculum requirements. Click HERE to visit the College & Career Readiness Action Team Page.

And three cross-cutting goals:

  • Increase the level of cultural competency among those in our community who work with and influence youth (educators and community members).

  • Increase the percentage of teachers and administrators of color.

  • Equitably Align Education Funding.
