Moving public education forward on October 6


Join us for a special kickoff event, the ONE by ONE Community Meeting focused on the Quality Education for All Fund! The Quality Education for All Fund is getting started this year, and community input and action are crucial. This five-year, $50 million locally-based initiative aims to invest where it's needed most.

On October 6, we'll gather for a community meeting at The Leadership Schools at Eugene J. Butler Middle - one of 37 schools in our city that are in which an unprecedented level of investment is being made after years of inequity. During the kickoff, you will hear directly from  Superintendent Nikolai Vitti about how this transformation is taking place, and ask your questions alongside teachers, students and fellow education advocates. This is an exciting and transformative year for nearly 17,000 students attending our city's highest-need schools.

  • You'll gain a better understanding of the Quality Education for All Fund initiative
