We are so honored to have launched High School Success Coalition team with community leaders from the Black Education Strategy Roundtable and Graduate Tacoma, Treehouse and the Washington Roundtable, the College Success Foundation and Stand for Children Washington.

There are many things happening today that create distance between people whose ideas differ. The High School Success Coalition (HSSC) represents a diversity of people that have come together for a singular purpose — we share a fundamental commitment to improving opportunity for kids.

What does that look like? For HSSC, improved opportunity for kids is built into policies that are being heard in the Washington State legislature right now. Together we hope to: (1)  ensure equitable access to academically challenging courses, (2) hire more school counselors to help middle and high school students succeed and (3) focus on the critical freshman year transition to ensure kids are on the right path through implementing a Freshman Success Strategy in every district.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and your ideas, we’re so happy to have you aboard.

Sincerely,

The High School Success Coalition
