Partnership for Learning Buddies

Washington Roundtable

The Washington Roundtable is a non-profit, public policy organization comprised of senior executives from major private sector employers throughout Washington state. Since 1983, the Roundtable has worked to create positive change on critical policy issues that foster economic growth, generate jobs and improve quality of life for Washingtonians. Partnership for Learning is the education foundation of the Roundtable.

Alliance for Education

The Alliance for Education works to ensure every child in Seattle Public Schools is prepared for success in college, career and life. Since inception in 1995, the Alliance has worked to cultivate the practice of charitable giving to education causes in Seattle and to build public support for education as a matter of social justice and economic prosperity.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The Gates Foundation, among its may priorities, has set an ambitious goal in K-12 education: to graduate all students college-ready. Only a third of students graduate on-time with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed beyond high school. Gates and the Partnership have long worked together to provide all students— especially low-income and minority students — with the opportunity to realize their full potential

Center of Reinventing Public Education

The Center on Revinventing Public Education (CRPE) engages in independent research and policy analysis on a range of K-12 public education reform issues, including choice & charters, finance & productivity, teachers, urban district reform, leadership, and state and federal reform.

Community Center for Education Results

Founded in 2010, Community Center for Education Results (CCER) has fostered the growth of a regional framework by leveraging the belief that collective effort is necessary to make large-scale educational change. CCER supports The Road Map Project and is dedicated to dramatically improving education results in South Seattle and South King County.

Excellent Schools Now

Led by Partnership for Learning, the League of Education Voters and Stand for Children, the Excellent Schools Now coalition includes more than 30 Washington education, business and community-based organizations. The coalition, which released the widely endorse A+ Washington education plan in 2012, works to achieve meaningful education reform at the state and local level that increases student achievement, closes the achievement gap and prepares students to be college and career-ready.

Our Schools Coalition

A diverse group of over 30 Seattle-based organizations and community leaders came together in March 2010 to form the Our Schools Coalition. Our Schools Coalition united to express the community’s voice in teacher contract negotiations, to advocate for our children, and to support teachers as professionals.

Washington STEM

Washington STEM advances excellence, equity, and innovation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education in Washington state, working with education leaders at the state, district and school level.

Washington Coalition for Public Charter Schools

The Washington Coalition for Public Charter Schools, which placed the 1-1240 on the ballot and worked to get it passed in November 2012, continues its leadership efforts to support effective implementation of high-quality charter schools. These charter schools will serve at-risk students and those who attend persistently low-performing schools. The coalition is led by Democrats for Education ReformLeague of Education Voters, Partnership for Learning and Stand for Children.

National Partners

Achieve

Created by the nation’s governors and corporate leaders, Achieve is an independent, bipartisan, non-profit education reform organization based in Washington, D.C. that helps states raise academic standards and graduation requirements, improve assessments and strengthen accountability.

Center for American Progress

The Center for American Progress is a think tank offering policy proposals, talking points, events, news and columns to improving the lives ofAmericans through progressive ideas and action.

PIE Network

The PIE Network (Policy Innovators in Education) connects 39 nonprofit, civic-led organizations in 25 states and the District of Columbia to build, support and promote a network of education advocacy organizations working to improve K-12 education in their states and the nation.

Thomas B. Fordham Institute

Research, publications, and projects make the Thomas B. Fordham Institute a leading source of analysis, commentary and purposefulaction in pursuit of educational excellence for every child.

FOUNDING PARTNERS

EDUCAUSE is a nonprofit association dedicated to advancing the intelligent use of information technology in higher education.

The association’s programs include applied research and analysis, strategic policy advocacy, teaching and learning initiatives, professional development, print and online information resources, and special interest collaborative communities. The current membership comprises more than 2,300 colleges, universities, and educational organizations.

The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is a nonpartisan, nationwide, nonprofit organization of public officials who head departments of elementary and secondary education in the states, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and five U.S. extra-state jurisdictions. CCSSO provides leadership, advocacy, and technical assistance on major educational issues.

 The International Association for K-12 Online Learning (INACOL), a non-profit 501(c)(3) membership association based in the Washington, DC area with more than 3,700 members. iNACOL is unique in that its members represent a diverse cross-section of K-12 education from school districts, charter schools, state education agencies, non-profit organizations, colleges, universities and research institutions, corporate entities and other content and technology providers. iNACOL hosts the annual Virtual School Symposium (VSS).

  The League for Innovation in the Community College is an international organization dedicated to catalyzing the community college movement. We host conferences and institutes, develop Web resources, conduct research, produce publications, provide services, and lead projects and initiatives with our member colleges, corporate partners, and other agencies in our continuing efforts to make a positive difference for students and communities.

Guided by the belief that every life has equal value,The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people—especially those with the fewest resources—have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life. Based in Seattle, Washington, the foundation is led by CEO Jeff Raikes and Co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.

ADDITIONAL PARTNERS

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has been making grants since 1967 to solve social and environmental problems at home and around the world. The Foundation’s programs have ambitious goals that include: helping to reduce global poverty, limiting the risk of climate change, improving education for students in California and elsewhere, improving reproductive health and rights worldwide, supporting vibrant performing arts in our community, advancing the field of philanthropy, and supporting disadvantaged communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Broad Foundation was founded by the Broad family in the 1960s as a way to support their charitable interests and causes. But with their financial success from the sale of SunAmerica, the Broads focused their charitable giving in a new style of investing that was more akin to their business acumen: venture philanthropy. Today, The Broad Foundations, which include The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation and The Broad Art Foundation, have assets of $2.1 billion. Their mission is to advance entrepreneurship for the public good in education, science and the arts.

CityBridge Foundation works to build a citywide system of high-performing schools in Washington, D.C. We identify, incubate, and invest in the most promising practices in public education in the District as we strive to create a robust portfolio of transformative schools—traditional public and charter—needed for success for all children. To ensure lasting success for this work, we offer a suite of engagement opportunities for local leaders in the business and philanthropic community. Our goal is to provide these prospective “stewards for education” with the knowledge and support to be advocates for continued, sustained progress in our schools.

LEAP Innovations advances personalized learning to prepare Americans for 21st Century skills by piloting, evaluating and diffusing successful teaching and learning innovations. Through the LEAP Pilot Network, the organization identifies education technology tools for critical learning gaps and matches them with learning environments prepared for them to create a rapid feedback loop, accelerating refinement while using rigorous standards so educators can quickly adopt what works. LEAP also provides co-working and training space and programs to bring together school designers, educators, entrepreneurs, tech companies, learning scientists and students to develop next-generation learning models, share ideas, co-develop solutions, and receive quality training.

The Chicago Public Education Fund is a nonprofit organization working to build a critical mass of great public schools in Chicago by investing in talented principals and enabling effective educator teams to reinvent classroom learning. The Fund serves as a catalyst for accelerating positive learning and life outcomes for students in all of Chicago’s charter and district public schools. The Fund is a longstanding leader in identifying and scaling what works for teachers and principals, as well as for the students they serve.

Inspired by their passion for children and by a shared desire to improve the lives of children living in urban poverty, Michael and Susan Dell established their Austin, Texas-based foundation in 1999. To date, the foundation has committed more than $1 billion to assist nonprofit organizations working in major urban communities in the United States, South Africa and India. The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation focuses on opportunities with the greatest potential to directly and measurably transform the lifelong outcomes of impoverished urban children around the globe. For more information, please visitwww.msdf.org.

The New England Secondary School Consortium (NESSC) is a regional partnership that promotes forward-thinking innovations in the design and delivery of secondary education across New England. The five partner states—Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont—work together to close persistent achievement gaps and promote greater educational equity and opportunity for all students.
New Schools for New Orleans and its coalition partners envision New Orleans transforming from a “C” school system to an “A” system—one that prepares all students for college and career—with effective personalized learning as a key driver. New Orleans will become a national proof point for what is possible when innovative school models operate within a system built on autonomy, accountability, and choice. The structure of the New Orleans coalition, which seeks to scale personalized learning, reflects these principles and decentralized environment. The coalition includes three non-profits: New Schools for New Orleans (NSNO), Educate Now!, and 4.0 Schools (4.0), with the Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) and the Louisiana Recovery School District (RSD).
The Rogers Family Foundation (RFF) seeks to catalyze organizations and systems to achieve and excel at the highest level in positively transforming the educational experience and opportunities for Oakland’s most disadvantaged students. Investing both staffing and funding resources, the Foundation envisions a future in which all Oakland students will graduate college-, career-, and community-ready. RFF is committed to ensuring that all students in Oakland have the opportunity to attend a high-quality school. Given the crucial importance of early school readiness, RFF has also set the goal that, by 2020, 85% of students will read at grade level by the end of third grade. In addition, RFF believes that achievement gaps by socioeconomic status must be eliminated for the city’s educational system to truly achieve transformative change.

The Colorado Education Initiative and its coalition partners imagine a future where education is designed to: help students develop the academic, professional, entrepreneurial, personal, and civic competencies that a modern society and economy demand; support educators in creating learning environments designed to maximize these outcomes for students; and promote systems that support and incentivize educators in this effort.

At Overdeck Family Foundation, our mission is helping all kids achieve their greatest academic potential.

Barr Foundation’s mission is to invest in human, natural, and creative potential, serving as thoughtful stewards and catalysts. Based in Boston, Barr focuses regionally, and selectively engages nationally, working in partnership with nonprofits, foundations, the public sector, and civic and business leaders to elevate the arts for vibrant, vital, and engaged communities; advance solutions for climate change; and expand educational opportunity. With assets of $1.6 billion, Barr is among the largest private foundations in New England and has contributed more than $710 million to charitable causes since 1999. Barr’s Education Program is focused on the goal of connecting all students to success in and beyond high school.

Center for Education Leadership Buddies

AASA

AASA, The School Superintendents Association, founded in 1865, is the professional organization for more than 13,000 educational leaders in the United States and throughout the world. AASA’s mission is to support and develop effective school system leaders who are dedicated to the highest quality public education for all children. For more information, visit www.aasa.org.

Through an emerging partnership, AASA members will have increased access to CEL training opportunities around developing instructional leadership.

BILL & MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION

With the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CEL is working across the country with statewide consortia, school districts and charter management organizations to improve effective teaching and dramatically increase student learning. The “Leading for Effective Teaching” project highlights how school districts are evolving the role of principals as instructional leaders — and how central offices are adapting to better support principals in these efforts. The “Leadership for Higher Academic Standards” project is building the skills of district and school leaders in leading the implementation of Common Core State Standards.

BLOOMBOARD

BloomBoard empowers educator growth through an easy-to-use online platform for professional development. BloomBoard’s innovative marketplace delivers CEL’s web-based training offerings as part of a comprehensive, personalized library of administrator and educators resources.

LEARNING FORWARD

Learning Forward is a nonprofit, international membership association of learning educators committed to one vision in K–12 education: Excellent teaching and learning every day. CEL is a member of Learning Forward’s Redesign PD Partnership, a diverse group of leading thinkers working to identify new solutions to challenges within the current professional learning system and to inspire new thinking about how to create demand for—and implement—redesigned systems of support that can guarantee that all educators have access to effective professional learning. Learn more.

LOGAN CENTER FOR EDUCATION AT THE INSTITUTE FOR SYSTEMS BIOLOGY

Through the Logan Center for Education, the Institute for Systems Biology promotes Next Generation Science, Engineering & Mathematics and addresses ways to make quality STEM education available for all. CEL experts serve as active thought partners in developing resources and experiences designed to support principals as instructional leaders for science. Learn more about Principles of Science for Principals (P4P).

MATHEMATICA POLICY RESEARCH / AMERICAN INSTITUTES FOR RESEARCH / PEMBERTON RESEARCH / SOCIAL POLICY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES

Mathematica Policy Research, along with its partners American Institutes for Research, Pemberton Research, and Social Policy Research Associates, is conducting a rigorous, multi-year, large-scale evaluation of the effectiveness of principal professional development for the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences. CEL is playing a central role in the study as the sole provider of training and coaching interventions aimed at honing principals’ skills. Learn more.

MICHIGAN ASSOCIATION OF SECONDARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS

Through a partnership with the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals, CEL has jointly developed Pivot with 5D+, an electronic teacher observation and evaluation tool based on CEL’s 5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning instructional framework and the 5D+ Teacher Evaluation Rubric.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SECONDARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS

NASSP is the leading organization of middle level and high school principals and schools leaders. Through a collaboration with CEL, NASSP members have access to CEL training programs that enable school leaders to better support teachers in the delivery of high-quality instruction.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION

The San Diego County Office of Education provides transformational professional learning opportunities for 42 Southern California school districts serving over 500,000 students. CEL’s partnership with San Diego COE marries the Center’s expertise with a high-performing local organization able to offer California school districts immediate practice, application and feedback.

TEACHING CHANNEL

The nonprofit Teaching Channel has reinvented the use of video content in professional learning with the launch of Teaching Channel Teams.

For school systems supported by CEL, Teaching Channel Teams presents another avenue for delivering CEL’s job-embedded, individualized coaching and professional development.
