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 organizations in efforts that are reforming education in our state. Our involvement varies, depending on what is needed to accomplish results.

We are proud of our various programs all designed to fulfill our mission of improving student achievement.  Read about our current lineup:

College Access – This unique program of awarding grants to local chambers of commerce is designed to increase post secondary participation and completion.

Critical Issues Forums – Presenting topical issues for debate and discussion three times a year.  Check the Critical Issues Forum page for more information and video reports of past Forums. 2018 Forums: August 15 and November 7.

Woodrow Wilson Georgia Teaching Fellowship Program – Gov. Nathan Deal announced at a March 3, 2014 press conference at the state Capitol that Georgia is the first state in the South to launch the program designed to recruit STEM teachers.  Four years later, the program is paying big dividends.
