Notes Founded by the County of San Mateo, the San Mateo County Office of Education, and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation in the mid 1990s, the Peninsula Partnership Leadership Council (PPLC) developed a Children’s Bill of Rights for San Mateo County that was adopted statewide in 2009. The PPLC decided that the most important element of the Bill of Rights was addressing the achievement gap. After extensive study, the PPLC launched the Big Lift initiative to address third grade reading as the most important inflection point for children’s success.
