The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently selected Social Policy Research Associates to conduct an evaluation of the Foundation’s Washington State Strategy. This strategy is using a network approach to strengthen math and social emotional outcomes for students in Seattle’s Road Map Region.
Andrew Wiegand, SPR President, stated: “We are thrilled to serve as a learner partner for the Gates Foundation’s Washington State Strategy. This project builds on our expertise in K-12 systems and our longstanding commitment to equity for all students. SPR’s team brings a commitment to continuous learning, partnership and equity to lift up lessons on how to support the whole child.”
Ms. Leshnick notes: “This is an exciting opportunity to apply a racial equity framework to understanding school and community change within the context of cross-sector collaborative efforts.”
