COLLABORATIVE ACTION NETWORKS

The work of the Graduate Tacoma community-wide movement is organized and mobilized primarily by five Collaborative Action Networks. These Networks consist of more than 100 youth-serving organizations, institutions, and school district staff who meet regularly to address the indicators identified by community as success measures for Tacoma youth, cradle to career.

Dedicated to ensuring 100% enrollment in TPS preschools, meeting all six developmental skills entering kindergarten, and reading proficiently by the end of third grade.

Dedicated to elevating the Tacoma-Pierce County voice to address impactful local, regional, and state policy issues that further our vision for a Tacoma where every child succeeds in school, career, and life.

Dedicated to increasing equitable access and enrollment in out-of-school and summer learning opportunities, collecting program provider data to drive targeted action, and making high-quality program training available to all community program providers.

Dedicated to increasing the number of Tacoma Public School graduates, especially students of color and those impacted by poverty, who enroll in a right-fit college or technical school the year after graduation and who successfully complete a degree or technical certificate.

Dedicated to expanding equitable access, interest, experience, and success in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) for all Tacoma students, particularly girls, students of color, and those impacted by poverty.
