Everything Starts with Equity
Fundamental to our vision is that we are committed to nothing less than closing the unacceptable achievement gaps for low-income students and children of color, and increasing the achievement for all students from prenatal to college and career.
Core Workgroups focus on creating strategies to achieve equitable outcomes in three focus areas: Prenatal to Third Grade, 4th-12th Grade, and High School to Career.
Cross-Cutting Workgroups are workgroups that act as content experts in the following fields: Data and Capacity, Equity and Inclusion, Community Engagement, and Policy and Advocacy.
Our Foundational Workgroup is Home and Family Stability. This workgroup focuses on meeting the community’s basic needs in order to prepare students for educational and career success.
Our Accountability Partners Council (APC) serves as the large convening space for all of KConnect’s network. It’s the only space where we bring ALL of the work together and make decisions collectively
November Accountability Partners Council
We are excited to invite you to the November Accountability Partners Council as we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of KConnect. Over the past decade, we have worked tirelessly alongside our partners and supporters to create positive change in our community, and it’s time to commemorate our journey together. Our President, Salvador Lopez, will also share his vision for the work as we embark on a new phase. Finally, attendees will be able to spend some time experiencing the gallery walk in the greenhouse – the perfect combination of data, storytelling, and greenery.

Data Creates Impact
KConnect is data informed, meaning we track and disaggregate local metrics on our 8 Success Measures and 27 Indicators in order to determine how to optimize strategies that create the most equitable outcomes for our community. We share this data publicly on our Data Dashboard.
How We Do It:
Process and Facilitation
KConnect brings Process and Facilitation to our convenings in order to equip our partners to develop tools and strategies that address disparate outcomes. We collectively develop frameworks and partner with expert facilitators to implement them.
