What is aN ACTION NETWORK?
Data is put to work in Action Networks — the engine behind collective impact. Action Networks are broad groups of stakeholders convened around specific community-level outcome areas — schools, community members, and service providers — develop strategies to improve educational outcomes in our community. Action Networks build common measures, coordinate resources, engage in continuous improvement, and work to identify and spread best practices.
Each Action Network will collaborate on an agenda specific to its focus area. Agendas will be developed by analyzing the landscape for the outcome area and identifying any gaps in services. Community priorities will be identified that will address advocacy and policy issues.
