There's Something Special Happening Here
Nearly one in three of Utah’s children live in the Promise Partnership Region, and the 2015 Results Report of the Promise Partnership Regional Council describes how we are working together differently so that every child in our region can reach eight crucial milestones. It celebrates changes that are possible when we put data, children, and outcomes at the center of our work and when we challenge ourselves to move from talk to action. The report calls attention to where startling inequities persist, and it challenges each of us to align our state’s many related education, health, and family financial stability efforts in mutually reinforcing ways.
Achieving success for all children in our communities, from cradle to career, requires diverse talents, abilities, resources, and connections. Whether you are connected to a school system, religious institution, business, public organization, or nonprofit, community, or civic organization, or a faith group – or are an individual who believes that we can do better for our neighbors and our state – we need you to join us in working differently to achieve results for all Utahns.
If you are interested in helping all children succeed, from cradle to career, take this quick survey and tell us a bit about how you can help achieve results for entire communities.
Interactive Data Table
The Promise Partnership community report card exists to focus attention and motivate action. It shows result trends of the combined efforts of more than 175 organizations engaged in improving outcomes for children and families. Data is shown for Promise Partnership Region (defined by the boundaries of Canyons, Davis, Granite and Park City School Districts). When possible, it is disaggregated to show opportunity gaps.
Op-Ed: The Promise Partnership Regional Council
By Martin Bates and Mark Bouchard
Last year, the 37 businesses, government institutions, faith groups, non-profits, school districts and institutions of higher education that comprise the Promise Partnership Regional Council told you about our early efforts to achieve results for the 370,700 children in our four-school district region. This week, we are releasing the second chapter of our story, which tells of a tremendous opportunity: the opportunity to work collectively to support each of Utah's children from birth to career.
