The 2022 Annual Report reveals that while we're making gains in the post-pandemic environment, the opportunity gap for students persists. As we embarked on our strategic framework to build a diverse teacher pipeline, improve 3rd grade literacy rates, and offer impactful professional learning experiences to teachers and school leaders, Duval County schools were experiencing the worst teacher shortage in 5 years. JPEF leaned into its strength as a researcher and convener to advocate for a one mill property tax to increase teacher compensation. Voters agreed that teacher retention was a priority, with 53% approving the measure.
The 2021 Annual Report shows that while the pandemic laid bare disparities in educational outcomes that have long persisted in our community, JPEF has stood steadfast beside our educators as they worked heroically to keep our children on track during the most difficult school year of their lives. And in the midst of this, we launched our Teacher Leadership Initiative, expanded the School Leadership Initiative, and announced two new far-reaching initiatives for 2022.

In Fiscal 2012, the Jacksonville Public Education Fund celebrated a number of exciting milestones.

In Fiscal 2011, the Jacksonville Public Education published its first annual report of activities, including the launch of major initiatives in data and policy research, community mobilization and advocacy.
