Review for Nevada Public Education Foundation, Carson City, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This public education foundation through its Ready for Life program has teamed up with the Reno area Council for Excellence for Education to launch the Community Compact which is already bringing out hundreds of volunteers to help change the culture of education and to respond in any way they can to support schools and/or other non profits help students move toward graduation and prepare for life.. The compact thus far has identified 17 sectors such as service clubs, businesses, fraternal and faith based groups, parents, law enforcement and the judicial system and provides specific tasks they can can commit to during the next year or more. This effort addresses the oft asked question "what can we do to help?' and recognizes the fact that teachers and principals cannot change or improve academic
achievement by themselves.

working with this group to introduce the Community Compact

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them raise additional dollars to expand their efforts.
