Core Values
These principles guide our decisions and actions:

Community-Focused. We listen constantly and carefully to the public and community organizations and work to ensure they have the tools they need to ensure all children have access to high-quality public education.

Data-driven and Transparent. We invest in objective research and evaluation, and rely on it to make decisions. We trust in our data, and make it freely available for others to evaluate independently.

Collaborative. We work to connect and collaborate with the school district and community organizations working on behalf of children. We listen to a wide variety of voices in our decision-making.

Inclusive and Respectful. We intentionally work to include diverse voices at the decision-making table. We value the wisdom of each person's unique experience.

Long-term Commitment. We pledge to keep our eyes trained on the ultimate goal of ensuring high-quality public education for all children in Duval County. Our organization is structured and funded with a long-term focus.

Student-Centered. We make decisions first and foremost on what is in the best interest of children in Duval County, with a special focus on students who face barriers to obtaining a high-quality education. We believe all students can achieve at high levels when provided with high-quality instruction and support.
