OneGoal

In response to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, OneGoal and the Illinois State Board of Education have partnered to deliver a Postsecondary Leadership Series and scale its classroom-based model to districts and schools across the state. This will include a range of leadership development services aimed to build capacity at the system level to ensure more equitable outcomes for students, district leaders, and school leadership teams – in 30-50 districts in high-priority areas across all six geographic regions of school districts in Illinois.

Our Role

In support of the OneGoal team and their Postsecondary Leadership Series, the EdSystems team is providing two primary services: capacity-building for OneGoal staff and advising for partner-facing content relating to college and career pathways, early college credit, transitional instruction, work-based learning, and data. Addressing and strengthening transitions to postsecondary is an essential touchpoint in driving equity in postsecondary access, success, and attainment.
