Over the past year-plus, I have had the pleasure of working with some exemplary leaders in government, nonprofit, school, and faith-based organizations, ranging from the White House down to a local church. Download my report on the local pilot project, one of the first in the nation, that sought to join together faith-based and community organizations with Title I schools in low-income communities to enhance student attendance, behavior, and course performance.
The Interfaith School Turnaround Pilot Project, renamed Together for Tomorrow, is a unique partnership across levels of government and sectors of society, all focused on a common goal: improve the educational opportunities and outcomes for children who face the most severe headwinds. I thank my local partners in the Heart of Florida United Way, City of Orlando, Orange County Public Schools, and the local faith community. There is great passion in the community, which is the heart of public service.
Please read the report linked above; I welcome any feedback or questions.
