Working Groups

 

The many partners that make up our organization collaborate together in a well-organized structure of three Working Groups (and one Policy Forum), each focused on addressing specific goals within community benchmark areas.  Groups choose a goal, study data, then develop and implement pilot initiatives. Since RISE is data-driven, the Working Groups carefully track their progress and learnings to create the best, most sustainable practices moving forward.

The three Working Groups are:

 
 

Prepared for School

Benchmark Focus
Kindergarten Readiness

Purpose
