Council for Educational Change... Legacy of Leadership
Students at Coral Gables Senior High, a Council for Educational Change PASS school.
PASS - Partnership to Advance School Success
A three year executive mentoring program that partners a business executive with a principal of a low performing school. The business partner commits $100,000 (over three years), which is matched by a grant from the Council for Educational Change, funded through the Florida Department of Education. With the assistance of an educational coach and a program coordinator, a educational business plan and budget is created to support school improvement efforts that drives increased student academic achievement.
The business partner imparts business acumen, corporate volunteers, marketing strategies and other corporate approaches to goals achievement. The Council has provided over 115 PASS grants impacting the lives of thousands of students and educators.
A derivative of the PASS model, this is a one-year model without the financial commitment. A business executive is partnered with a principal of a low performing school to address one or two achievable goals that will increase student academic achievement and/or issues that have an impact on school culture
