The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education is involved in a variety of efforts that all work toward one common purpose as dictated in our mission statement: Improving student achievement.

The Partnership has several signature programs that serve to effectively position the organization on many fronts.  As our name implies, we often partner with other organzations in efforts that are reforming education in our state. Our involvement varies, depending on what is needed to accomplish results.

The right side of this page details both our various programs as well as current on-going events that find us actively at work across the state to make Georgia a leader in public education.
