Student Success and Risk Profiles

ALLIANCE FOR EDUCATION


The Alliance for Education is a partnership among business, labor, government, community and education in San Bernardino County in Southern California. Our mission is to produce an educated and skilled community that provides a qualified workforce for the continued economic well-being and improved quality of life for all residents. 


Preparing All Students from Cradle to Career

Preparing All Students from Cradle to Career

Since February 2002, the Alliance members and executive board have advanced a collaborative effort that has aligned common goals of key educational institutions, workforce preparation training organizations and committed stakeholders to achieve the following goals:


Education: Strengthen a standards-based, academically rigorous and technically advanced education with relevant, work-based learning opportunities provided by business, labor, and community partnerships.


Family Engagement: Provide family education, parent engagement activities, and literacy support programs and resources through education institutions, businesses, and community and faith-based organizations.


Economic and Workforce Development: Utilize current systems of workforce preparation in order to effectively align common goals and resources and deliver services, education and/or training to students and adults countywide.


Student achievement is the key to economic prosperity, an improved quality of life, and a successful future. Students require support to meet specific benchmarks in order to build a strong foundation for educational success in preparation for college and career. Each of the three goals of the Alliance has emerged into an integrated system of college and career readiness, with an emphasis in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).


This dynamic, integrated education and workforce readiness system has hinged upon communities embracing a collective impact approach to implement the Countywide Vision and the Cradle to Career Roadmap. The County Vision Education Element Team is focusing on an organized movement in which families, educators, government, business and labor, and faith- and community-based organizations act as pillars of support for students.
