Improving educational outcomes for the children of Flagstaff takes an entire community. That’s why I am grateful for your ongoing engagement in the LAUNCH Flagstaff partnership. Over the next several emails, I’d like to reintroduce you to the work of LAUNCH Flagstaff and our collaborative action for advancing world-class educational opportunities for each child in our community.
So, let’s start with our “why”:
We believe that every child in Flagstaff deserves equitable access to world-class educational experiences from cradle through their career.
We believe that world-class education is student focused and student led.
We believe that we have the resources, talent and will in our community to improve educational outcomes for all of our children.
We approach this work through a framework of collaborative action that produces a collective impact for our kids. LAUNCH Flagstaff serves as the impartial backbone in support of subject matter experts and community leaders in that collaborative action.
Here's how we do it:
The health of a community is best measured through the opportunities for every one of its children to learn. Great teachers and schools, great libraries and museums, a wealth of engagement in cultural/artistic events and physical activities, an excitement about science, technology, engineering and math, a network of supportive adults – all provide children and young adults the skills and perspectives that open the world to them.
Not all communities can offer this array of learning riches, but Flagstaff can.
With your help, we can make a difference in the educational outcomes for every child in Flagstaff. That's why I am so excited that you are part of the LAUNCH Flagstaff partnership.
In my next email, I’ll explain how we are making that collective impact.
