TVEP’s Goal TVEP’s goal: To coordinate the area’s existing resources and institutions to ensure at least 80% of Treasure Valley students go on to college and/or career/technical education by 2016.
Shared Community Vision Shared Community Vision: Every child, every step of the way, cradle to career. Mission: The Treasure Valley Education Partnership is an unprecedented collaboration designed to advance a world-class education system that leads all students to their career of choice.
TVEP Beginnings 2010 ― A United Way of Treasure Valley (UWTV) study called the Treasure Valley Education Partnership (TVEP) identified the true high school graduation rate, dropout rate and college going rate for the valley. Data revealed Caldwell School District (CSD) as having the most need and was prioritized. UWTV partnered with CSD and the Treasure Valley Family YMCA to implement the first district-wide continuum of education, called the P16 Caldwell Education Project.
TVEP Beginnings (Cont.) Meanwhile, Southern Idaho Conference (SIC) superintendents ― comprising 10 districts in the valley ― united to align their message. The SIC met with and partnered with leaders from K-12, nonprofits, foundations, the business community and postsecondary institutions. Oct. 2011 ― TVEP joined the Strive Network, which provides a framework for success in 60 communities and 31 states.

Community Support TVEP has received community investments from: JP Morgan Chase & Co. Wells Fargo The Wharton Foundation Many other companies/organizations throughout the valley
Focus Areas TVEP focuses on ensuring that every child: 1.Is prepared for school. 2.Is supported inside and outside school. 3.Succeeds academically. 4.Enrolls in and completes some form of post high school education. 5.Enters their career of choice. 6.Is supported through meaningful career progression.
Networks for Each Focus Area Each Goal has a corresponding Network to implement strategies and collaborative action within that area. Each Network is composed of community members with expertise in that area. Each Network includes a Core Team liaison and two chairs.
Recent Success Established community-level indicators for four of six focus areas Hired Director of Continuous Improvement Mobilized more than 200 organizations Recognized as having phenomenal leadership Network planning teams have identified priorities to begin our work in Prepared for School and Supported Inside and Outside of School groups Secondary and postsecondary leaders of TVEP have decided to work collectively
Lessons Learned Focus The fewer indicators the better (10-12 at community level.) Focus on three priorities that everyone can agree on. Stay present to what you can do in a year’s time. Don’t let perfection get in the way of action. Structure New structure is critical. It takes “grass tops” and “grass roots.” Concept of middle field Must have leadership focus and a home
Lessons Learned Process Manage expectations. Forming, storming and norming. Everyone will be at different levels. That’s OK. There is tremendous power in collective impact. Our voice is heard. There is an end to the honeymoon period. Be sensitive to voices you are missing.
Lessons Learned The Work This work is all about honesty. Education outcomes vs. mobilization outcomes. Be careful to think you are ever done. Build on current work. This work is a leap of faith. Data can be sad; don’t let it numb you.
Remember… Failing forward Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good Move from proving to improving Investing in education is different than funding education
