Working Together
For Educational Equity

Our Vision of the Future

A diverse collection of over 100 school districts, community members and nonprofit organizations have come together as a cross-sector, county-wide, Cradle to Career Partnership to strengthen Marin’s system of schools and educational support services for all children. Marin Promise Partnership combines the direct service expertise of partners and provides data that assists partners to accomplish together what non can do alone.

Their Future Is Our Mission

We promise that by 2028 we will have closed educational equity gaps at every stage along a student’s cradle to career journey. That’s why more than 100 school districts, community members, nonprofits, funders, businesses, and government agencies have joined forces to work together as a county-wide, cross-sector, cradle-to-career partnership. With the support of MPP back-bone team staff, using the nationally recognized StriveTogether collective impact framework, we are taking an antiracist stance to break down barriers, build relationships, change systems, and improve lives.

The Support of Our Partners

Partners are public champions for each other and the collective work of the Partnership. Each Partner agency agrees to align with the Partnership’s vision for educational equity and its Cradle-to-Career framework. Partners work together through the Partnership’s Collaborative Improvement Process aimed at achieving equitable outcomes for all students.

“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.”
