GO is a network of families, educators and community members in Fresno with a deep commitment to the simple idea that every kid deserves a good chance, in school and in life.
There are many excellent teachers and schools in Fresno, but today, far too many students lack the education that will prepare them to thrive in their lives. We believe Fresno has the strength, commitment and passion to do better.
Together, we advocate for a school system that puts student outcomes first, demands that leaders do the same, and holds them accountable for keeping their promises.
By providing information, building leadership skills, and advocating publicly, GO’s network is working toward a Fresno where every student has access to an excellent public school.
GO Fresno 2017 Priorities
1. Develop the Choosing Our Future 2.0 Report
Develop a report modeled after “Choosing Our Future,” which was published in 2005, to carefully examine what progress has and has not been made, refresh our community’s vision and goals for high quality schools, and implement transformative recommendations that demonstrate our renewed commitment to achieving dramatically accelerated progress for every student in Fresno Unified.
2. Establish Family Leadership Fellowship
The Fellowship will engage families and young people to lead the crafting of the vision for Fresno Unified that will be included as part of the Choosing Our Future 2.0 report. Family Fellowship leaders will also develop and deepen skills to advocate for policy recommendations in alignment with that vision.
3. Launch Board Watch
Our Board Watch program will preview and explain school board meeting agendas and highlight the board’s discussions and decisions. Content will be shared through our website and email communications.
