City: Bay Area

In California’s Bay Area, a unique coalition of businesses, early education advocates, policymakers, and real estate developers partner to improve student outcomes throughout the education pipeline. As Summit Preparatory High School, a public non-profit charter high school in Redwood City, offers a unique solution to the dilemma of college readiness to prepare students for the jobs of tomorrow, Build Up for San Mateo’s Children, a coalition established to alleviate the childcare shortage in San Mateo County, relies on partnerships with city officials, developers, employers, school districts, and others to bring creative solutions for childcare and early learning facilities to the table in broader city planning conversations.
