Local education leadership must be guided by policy expertise and community engagement in order to build lasting change. GO Public Schools West Contra Costa’s student-focused, solutions-oriented network enters the conversation to shape and support policies that expand educational opportunity for our highest need children. Guided by our Leadership Council, we work within this policy framework to:
Every student has access to highly effective teachers; more, our highest need students have equitable access to our most highly effective teachers.
Every student in every neighborhood has public school options that prepare them to fully participate and succeed in life and work in the 21st century.
Systems and structures empower the entire education community to act in the best interests of children, disrupt and address inequities based on race, language, and class, and ensure efficient, effective supports for schools and families.
