Our education goal is to increase the percentage of students from all backgrounds who attain postsecondary success. We are approaching this goal through major initiatives focused on specific areas in education, and through support for the overall education ecosystem within our region. Our developing portfolio of major initiatives is focused on spurring innovative solutions to the pressing education challenges facing our region. The ongoing Teacher Effectiveness Initiative is part of this portfolio, and we will launch additional efforts in the coming years. To help create a favorable environment for these initiatives and the initiatives of others to succeed, we offer Education Ecosystem Grants to organizations whose work contributes toward building an education ecosystem that supports change.
