Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Jacksonville Public Education Fund activates and builds the capacity of leaders committed to ensuring quality public schools in Duval County improve outcomes with and for all students.

We do this by:
1) Engaging: We engage, align and support community parent, teacher, school and system leaders to use their voice, influence, skills and abilities to improve public schools.
2) Informing: We conduct research and broadly communicate to inform leaders of policy, practice and cultural changes that will promote excellence and equity for students and communities.
3) Mobilizing: We mobilize leaders at all levels to take action to improve student opportunity, learning and achievement in our public schools.

The Jacksonville Public Education Fund has three main capacities. They are: Community Mobilization, Data & Research and Policy & Advocacy.
