CORE Districts is a collaboration of school districts working together to improve student achievement through highly productive, meaningful partnership and learning between member school districts. Currently, eight school districts serving more than 1 million students participate in the collaborative: Fresno, Garden Grove, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Santa Ana Unified. Together, our districts share a fundamental belief that all students can achieve at high levels and are deeply committed to providing learning opportunities that will help them to do so. Organizationally, CORE Districts is a 501c3 nonprofit serving as a hub for this collaboration and supporting partnership and shared learning at the superintendent, central office, school leader, and teacher levels.
CORE Districts’ long-term goal is for all California students to have strong support, effective programming, and an educational community standing together by their side so that they can achieve and succeed in college and career. We are working towards this goal by supporting and facilitating inter- and intra-district collaboration to innovate, implement, and scale successful strategies and tools that help students succeed.
