Learn to Earn Dayton will facilitate education providers and nonprofits to work together to accomplish the community indicators. Learn to Earn Dayton will not provide direct service to students but will work with the providers currently in place to maximize their impact and effectiveness. Learn to Earn Dayton will provide focus for the community on the most promising indicators that will lead to an increase in the percentage of adults with post-secondary degrees.
Learn to Earn Dayton will work alongside all partners (including school districts, charter schools, private/Catholic schools, nonprofits, community/business leaders, and funders) to understand the challenges and opportunities facing students and educators. Learn to Earn Dayton will then identify research-based interventions that could positively impact student growth and work to implement these interventions in the region. Particular focus will be given to the five highest poverty school districts to identify strategies that can “move the needle” in terms of the four power indicators: kindergarten readiness, 3rd grade reading proficiency, 9th to 10th grade transition, and college enrollment.
Learn to Earn Dayton is working to ensure that every young person in the Dayton region is ready to learn by kindergarten and ready to earn by graduation.
