About The Commit Partnership:

The Commit Partnership is focused on the powerful idea that every child in Dallas County should receive an excellent and equitable K-12 education, preparing them to flourish at the collegiate level and beyond. To reach this vision, the Partnership serves as a community navigator and connector, analyzing data to elevate strategic initiatives, improve practices and policies, and ultimately growing community capacity, capabilities and resources to serve students more effectively.

Founded in 2012, the Partnership is the nation’s largest educational collective impact organization: a coalition of over 200 partners (public and private schools, colleges, foundations, businesses, and nonprofits), all working collaboratively to solve our region’s biggest systemic educational challenges. Our flagship effort, Early Matters Dallas, focuses on improving early childhood outcomes, while our second initiative, Best in Class DFW, aims in partnership with the Communities Foundation of Texas to increase the number of effective and diverse campus educators serving DFW’s 1.2 million students. Our third initiative, Dallas County Promise, seeks to align our local higher ed institutions to maximize the number of students who can access and complete a quality post-secondary education. Day-to-day work is supported by more than 25 full-time staff who combine data, deep educational experience, and strategic thinking to collectively support Partnership efforts while advocating for Dallas County students at the state and local level and convening community conversations around the latest research and best practices. The net result is a shared roadmap for the future that civic leaders and local stakeholders own and hold themselves mutually accountable for its execution.

Our Core Values:

Integrity - To best serve students, families, and the community we will act honestly and ethically in how we make both internal and external decisions, present data, and communicate with partners

Equity & Inclusion – We seek to help transform systems in ways that ensure every student has access to the resources they need. We do this by actively and explicitly working with others to create more equitable outcomes and processes.

Students First - Our decisions are guided by multiple stakeholders, but ultimately rest upon one question: What is in the best interest of students?

Systemic Impact – We are patient and persistent as we identify the most effective approaches to help create lasting systems change. Once identified, we prioritize and relentlessly attack systemic challenges with efficiency and excellence.

Humility - We embrace the fact that our community’s success depends on our ability to work cohesively with each other and to constantly learn.

Joy - It’s important we bring a constant sense of optimism and have fun while taking on this difficult work.
