The Framework for Building Cradle to Career Civic Infrastructure is outlined below. It is important to note that this is not a “model” as there is no single method for implementing the framework in a community. Instead, the framework acts as a guide for those willing to commit over the long-term to developing the right infrastructure that meets the unique needs of their individual community.
The graphic below helps explain The Framework in full detail - simply click on each row to learn more about that pillar.
A broad set of cross-sector community partners come together in an accountable way to implement a cradle to career vision for education and communicate that vision effectively
The integration of professional expertise and data to make decisions about how to prioritize a community’s efforts to improve student outcomes
The process by which networks of appropriate cross-sector practitioners use data to continually identify, adopt and scale practices that improve student outcomes
There is broad community ownership for building cradle to career civic infrastructure and resources are committed to sustain the work of the partnership to improve student outcomes
