The “old way” of doing things isn’t working. We are program rich and system poor.
Joint accountability and data-driven decision making will collectively move student outcomes.
HOW WE GET THERE
A new way of working together so that all students have access to education.
The Tulsa region is home to nearly 30% of Oklahoma’s population. Throughout our community, teachers, nonprofits, parents and volunteers work hard to improve educational outcomes for our students. We have made progress over the years, but while Tulsa is home to some of the best education program models and innovative ideas in the country, we have not yet achieved the kind of success that is necessary to support the future of our regional economy.
Using data as a flashlight, not a hammer.
“Measure What Matters, Identify Effective Practices, Align Resources”
It all starts with using data to inform decision-making in our region that all students have access to the education and community-based resources they need to succeed. As a community, we are moving away from the old way of using arbitrary data as a hammer, and instead finding new ways of working together by using relevant data as a flashlight that guides both resources and investments. No longer is education just the job of administrators and teachers, it’s a community responsibility and we are ALL accountable.
HOW WE GET THERE
These challenges signal a need for our community to find new ways to work together to help students succeed. The unprecedented ImpactTulsa partnership addresses that need. We are committed to ensuring the community’s collective efforts are aligned toward boosting student success. When our region agrees on common education outcomes we no longer are a collection of good programs, but instead we become a community with a first class education system that guarantees each student receives a high-quality education.
Coming together, defining goals, taking action together and sharing accountability…We call this collective impact.
ImpactTulsa measures what matters. We identify and share best practices from across the United States. We align resources to achieve transformative impact. This is the new way of working together. It is collective impact. Continue reading.
