Transcript of 2012 Strive National Convening - Moving from Proving to Improving

2012 Convening - Milwaukee DAY 1 Moving to Quality
Standards and Rigor "My biggest concern about where we are is we have a ton of energy. We have seen initiatives in education come out with a bang and then very quickly fizzle out. Collective impact risks getting watered down to become collaboration. We must set rigorous standards of what collective impact looks like. What will get this work to stick in the long term? The answer is rigor."

- Jeff Edmondson, Managing
Director Strive "Our bottom line as a Network is to solve the black box we still have to figure out is how to use data effectively at the community level and to improve outcomes for children."

- Jeff Edmondson Investing for Impact: Lessons Learned in the Shift to Funding What Works http://www.youtube.com/user/strivenetwork DATA STORIES: Riverside High
School Drumline "Maybe I'm a hopeless optimist. Maybe I'm naive. Maybe I'm unrealistic. Maybe my educational expertise isn't sufficient to anticipate how much can and will go wrong.Or maybe I just can't bear the thought of failing the kids again.

It doesn't matter. I'm all in. For the long haul." DAY 2 Visioning Civic Infrastructure 2.0:
How Data Will Be Used to Support
Every Child, Cradle to Career "Education is a community
and social imperative."

- Reba Dominski,
Director of Education, Target "One of the greatest challenges of our time is education and the millions of students who fall off the path to graduation each year, one student every 26 seconds. Many falling into the ever widening achievement gap. And honestly, truly, frankly that is unacceptable."

Proven Practices Moderator: Nancy Zimpher, State University of New York Dan Cardinali;

FEEDBACK "Excellent agenda with a mix of workshops, plenaries, networking time, social media opportunities and authentic engagement of leaders throughout." "The focus on equity and
ways to keep it at the
center of the work." "Actually seeing and hearing the
number of people engaged in the
work, learning what other sites
are doing and building relationships
with other partnerships." "The data stories were effective,
set a great tone for the emphasis
on data and were an opportunity
to see results." "Plenary sessions with
excellent speakers and
an outstanding facilitator." NETWORK RECEPTION AND AWARDS PROGRAM Moving from Proving to Improving Moderator: Michele Jolin, America Achieves Cradle to Career Catalyst
Award Winners: “We can do a better job together mobilizing the stakeholders . . . that what we are talking about means enough to them that . . . they are going to demand it whether we decide to change our minds and abandon the field or not . . . that gives us a shot.” View the
conversation Portland
Seattle
Santa Barbara
San Antonio View the
Conversation “The most important role an anchor entity can play and adds the most value is the development and management of a robust and comprehensive data system . . . a data system that is integrated across agencies, provides disaggregated information about students, . . . is longitudinal from birth to workforce so that we can catch them at crucial transition points, . . . and one that is linked with a state longitudinal data systems.”

- Deborah Delisle, US Dept. of Education “Everything we do has to have some path towards changing outcomes for kids and families on a large scale, on the scale of whole populations.”

- Patrick McCarthy, Annie E. Casey Foundation “One of the things we know about data is it leads to action and it leads to real action that we can measure and hopefully we can sustain”

- Stacey Stewart, United Way Worldwide “We have to build capacity [to use data] and we have to build it inside the school building”

- Michael Robbins, US Dept. of Education “Through partnerships . . . we can move the needle and make it happen”

- Mike Lovell, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee "If you increase by just 1 percent the college attainment level of your region and your city it results in an immediate and strong increase in per capita income and if you measure the success of your region or your city based on per capita income, 58 percent of the success of your city . . . or region is down to one thing: the level of educational attainment." "It is not enough, and the data is very clear, to blanket schools with resources. It is, in fact, the intentional integration of the right sets of resources to the right kids in the right dosage in alignment with the vision of principals and teachers to drive student academic outcomes." "If I just started by saying 'what do our children need in America in terms of neighborhoods of opportunity to be successful?' . . . and then I had the same conviction that I have for my own daughter . . . what would happen if more leaders started saying that?"
