PowerPoint Presentation


The Bright Futures Education Partnership

Describe purpose of the presentation.

What is the Bright Futures Education Partnership? Bright Futures is a new community partnership that brings together progressive dialog, innovation, data and solutions to measurably improve community-scale education outcomes for Monterey County.

CSUMB serves as the anchor organization for the partnership and the Partnership is led by a cross-sector group of leaders from business, education, government, non-profit and faith communities.

1Our Community Charter

To ensure that every child

is prepared for school,

succeeds in and out of school,

completes a post-high school credential,

and enters a promising career .

What is our Communitys Charter? To ensure that every child: is prepared for schoolachieves in and out of school completes a post-high school credential enters a promising career

This is simple, and clear. But it will be hard work to close the gaps from where we are today. 2

If that is our charter, how many children and youth growing up in Monterey County achieve in the education pipeline and enter a promising career?

By 2020, 2/3rds of all U.S. jobs will require a post-high school credential Locally we value 3 career paths with a variety of credentials:1) Job training certificate (Occupational/career training) 2) Associates Degree 3) Bachelors Degree

We have about 4,500 young people coming out of high school each year How many of our young people achieve today?

Our Community Forecast (ourcurrent trajectory, based on past experience, if we dont change anything): 7K enter kindergarten & only 1.5K earn a career credential

This is why we formed the Bright Futures Education PartnershipWe seek to close these gapsWe see this will benefit not only the young people in this education pipeline, but it will also benefit the entire community to be filled with promising young people.

Every organization can do something to improve these results: either serving the children, youth or young adults directly, or supporting the parents, teachers, and program providers who do, or supporting the employers that hire these young people as graduates.

Why is Education a Community Issue?Why is Education a Community Issue?

4One Community

Im sure glad the hole isnt on our end4,500 Young adults are finishing high school in Monterey County per year. Over 10 years, that is almost 50,000 twenty-somethings in our community. 70% of those will be marginally employable unless we change the situation

We have two options, either:

Option 1: These HS grads have no or limited career prospects and rely on social assistance or find other ways of sustaining themselves

Option 2: They enter a promising career and contributing to a thriving local economy.

We all benefit from option #2

5How does the Whole Community Benefit from Improved Education Outcomes?

Multi-generational families

High quality, local talent for employers

Vibrant local economy

Raised standards of living

Sense of shared pride Community BenefitMulti-generational families How many of you know a promising young adult who left Monterey County for college or career and didnt come back because of lack of opportunities locally? What if we had more careers locally for skilled young professionals and families? If we had opportunities for all ages, more families will enjoy Sunday dinner together, with 3 or 4 generations at the same table, because their adult kids did not have to leave Monterey County to find promising careers.

High quality, local talent for employers Currently, many employers indicate that they arent finding all the quality talent they need locally.Many employers, including business and public employers, have to hire talent from outside the area and relocate them here. Relocations are costly and challenging If employers worked closely with colleges, schools and after school programs, students could be groomed to specifically match employer needs.

Vibrant local economy A well-rounded, sustainable economy has large numbers of individuals in high wage, high demand jobs vs. large numbers of individuals on social assistance (which is what we have now). Working individuals and professionals earn income that cycles back through our economy. They will eventually buy houses for sale, make good neighbors, and buy services that round-out an economic balance.

Raised standards of living Currently in Monterey County large numbers of families live in poverty, and many of them have less than a high school education. By advancing education outcomes for our community, we can set up the future adults of our community to be equipped for career opportunities so they can raise the standard of living for their families. With raised standards of living, we see other beneficial improvements such as improved health and reduced violence.

Sense of Pride By raising the bar for education outcomes in our community, we have the opportunity to realize a shared sense of pride about improving the lives of all people who life here. If we aim high, and work on shared goals, over a generation our community could be recognized for its vibrant talent supply. We could achieve that, if we made education a priority.


How Will the Partnership Work?What role will the Bright Futures Education Partnership play in creating positive social change?

7What is Bright Futures Partnership? A collaborative partnership, represented by all sectors, focused on improving community education outcomes and creating a better future for the benefit of all who live here.

Areas of Focus Focusing on systemic issues Engaging organizational silos to work togetherFostering county-wide solutions

Role in the Community Catalyst for change Convener of thought leaders Broker of a portfolio of solutions that work

What is Bright Futures?

The Bright Futures Partnership will compliment all existing programs by focusing on larger-scale education-related issues:Focusing on systemic issues and solutions that are complex, beyond any one organization Full cradle to career continuum Each chapter on that continuum, plus the alignment or transitions between chapters

Engaging silos to work together Bright Futures brings together: Colleges with employers; so grads meet employer needs K12 with colleges; so kids are ready for collegeIn-school with out-of-school solutions; so learning is integrated Early childhood learning with elementary schools; so children succeed in early learning foundations

Fostering County-wide solutions (large scale), that compliment local initiativesCompliment initiatives at the city , regional and school level Seek comprehensive, shared solutions for county-wide application

Role in the Community?

The role of Bright Futures is a hub of innovation for the community: Catalyst for change Convener of thought leaders Broker of a portfolio of solutions that work

It is also helpful to understand what we are not - Bright Futures Partnership is : Not another program; rather, we partner with existing programs Not another funder; rather, we partner with investors Not duplicative; we compliment and integrate with other initiatives, while taking the lead on education We seek shared capacity so all boats rise together

Who will be Involved? They are opportunities for you to get involved:

When fully developed, the Partnership will include: 3-5 Dedicated staff 20 Steering Partners50+ Leaders Forum 300+ Improvement Networks (each network pursuing one goal) 500+ Community members

What are next steps? Sept-Oct: Review data about our current state with various community groups Sept-Oct: Support IMPACT Monterey County as they rollout aspirational data Nov: Set vision and goals for community educationJanuary and beyond : Via Improvement Networks, pursue insights and solutions, persistently, until we see results improve

This is a marathon, not a sprint, because we are working with very complex issues

What is our Current State? Good news: We are already improving: K12: Positive results on the County Ed website showing continuous Improvement year-over-year Many school districts Have leaders driving bold and continuous improvements Community Colleges & Universities Also have leaders dedicated to clear goals to improve student success and improved graduation/completion rates.We have momentum; so we are not starting from scratch Bad news: Current outcomes are still very low For this new partnership, we are starting with low numbers , some very low Now we are inviting all sectors of community to join the process of improvement More good news: Together, we can accelerate the pace of positive change 9What Are We Going to Improve? 100+ Indicators of Success(Data Team) 25 Priority Metrics(Data Team) A Dozen Metrics(Steering Partners)Priorities You See?CradleCareer

What are we going to improve?

We have a short list of a dozen potential areas being considered and prioritized

We formed a volunteer Data Team of cross-sector professionals They reviewed 100+ metrics, including student readiness student success regional talent supplyThey recommended about 25 priority areas

Our Steering Partners then prioritized about a dozen areas

We invite you to also review the list of potential areas to improve and provide your feedback to two questions:

#1) Did we get it right? (Did we identify the right outcomes and indicators for the community to improve together?) Answers is either Yes, Partly and I suggest you change/add/delete something, or No and why.

#2) Which do you see as the top 4 priorities?

During Sept-Oct we will ask many community groups the same questions and then feedback what we heard.

You can see feedback from groups on the Bright Futures website (www.brightfuturesMC.org)

10How Will We Create Change? Align around a few shared goals

Form innovative, improvement networks Gather more data Analyze root causes Discover what works Design prototypes Develop & pilot solutions Measure, and share what works

Stand accountable for community results, together

Apply best practices for creating social change Stanford Social Innovation Review (www.ssir.org)Strive Network (www.strivetogether.org)

How will we create social change? Align around a few common goals:

Form Improvement Networks Use data for insights into root causes Use innovation to design solutions Use our collective teamwork - and largely existing resources - to implement the solutions

Stand Accountable for community results, together

Follow national practices of Collective Impact Strive Network: We are part of a national network of cradle-to-career initiatives Brought Jeff Edmonson and Nancy Zempher to Monterey Will continue to bring thought leaders, like Wim Wievel, guest speakerStanford: We are part of a social innovation community at StanfordChronicled in Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR.org)

[transition] Data is an integral part of continuous improvement and insightful innovation. To create social change, we need to know where we are starting from.

Now, Id like to invite one of our Steering Partners to come up and to walk us through the data that reveals what our kids experience in their cradle to career journey today.

[Eduardo and Bruce step down]

[Bruce removes mic, Eduardo keeps his]11

Data, Insights & Opportunities Lets walk through the outcomes and indicators.

As we do, remember we will ask you two questions:

Did we get it right? (or is there something we should add, change or delete?)

What do you see as the top 4 priorities

We are going to look at this from the end-point of a promising career, and work backwards.

Key Outcomes30%High School Grads Earn Degree or Credential

Youth DevExpectationsEngagementCaring AdultsAdditional Data re: High School & College:

IMPACT Survey Data:

Youth Survey 72% of high school juniors aspire to earn a BA, MA or PhD.

Adult Survey - 70% of parents aspire to see their children earn more than a post-high school in their education

Other: College Going Rate: 60% of all high school students enter college:

This is 60% of Monterey County students follow their aspirations and enroll in college somewhere, including outside the County.

Of those who stay local, and speaking proportionally, thousands go to Hartnell or MPC (or other tri-county community college), only hundreds go to CSUMB directly as Freshman.

The biggest challenge that students experience is being channeled into remediation courses upon arrival at a college campus. After 6 years in remedial courses, only about half of students ever progress out of remediation into regular college courses.

Students who start at our Community Colleges and then transfer to CSUMB (2+2) graduate at higher numbers that first time freshman who start directly at CSUMB:

62% CSUMB graduation rate for Monterey County students who transfer from Hartnell or MPC to CSUMB (2+2).

45% CSUMB graduation rate for Monterey County students who start as first time freshman.

This data again points to the importance of students entering our Community Colleges having a positive and successful experience (not remediation), since it appears from the data to be both the route chosen most often, but also the route through which more students graduate.


15This is a 10+ year, results-oriented commitment to transformative change.We are asking you to: Think beyond your tenure

Care beyond your own back yard

Believe we can transform our community

Ambitious CommitmentWe are thinking big, long-term and transformative.

If we choose a few things to improve, and the whole community works together, persistently, we can create real change.

We are asking a lot. We are asking you to:

Think beyond your tenure

Care beyond your own back yard

Believe change can happen here 16

At this point, you may be feeling what can I do? This is often the moment when we are asked to reach for our wallets. But we are not asking you for a donation. Bright Futures is not a 501c3, it is a Partnership.

What we are asking for is more challenging. We are asking for: Your leadership courageYour strategic skillset Your influence on each other We are also asking you to return and convene again in the Fall to set vision and goals for education in our community Between now and then we will share this data with many groups, SMEs, students, parents, teachers and program providers to get their feedback. Please invite Cynthia Holmsky, the Partnership Director, (wave hand) or any of the Steering Partners (wave hands) to present at any of your organizations to foster this community conversation. Also during the Fall, we are partnering with the United Way and IMPACT Monterey a they roll out research that brought over 7,000 voices of our community around aspirations.

This is a long-term journey of patience, persistence, and thought leadership. I hope you join, act, and lead within our community to foster progress so more kids achieve, and our community thrives.
