THE WEEK OF MAY 28, Year 3
ACE Inagural Cohort
Dear ACE Family,
It is hard to believe our three year ACE journey is ending. I am deeply grateful for your dedication to our students and your steadfast belief that they serve the best educators and the best learning environments.
When we embarked on this journey, we talked about how the ACE initiative was so much larger than our seven schools. We talked about how educators, legislators, and community members all over the country would be watching to see if students in poverty attending chronic low performing schools could in fact learn at high levels with the right investment. Together we have championed the idea that all student can learn with equity resources --- the most important being the classroom teacher and campus leader.
Your hard work has created strong results for students! You have reinforced the belief that greatness is really about people --- "Great schools start with great people. No matter where you go, when you see students inspired to reach for their dreams, you invariably encounter a visionary leader, expert teachers, and dedicated support staff." Thank you for your dedication; this is truly legacy work.
Best wishes for an enjoyable and productive week.
