• This shared initiative between the Office of Family and Community Engagement and the Office of Equity and Diversity complements the Strategic Plan of USD 259.  It is designed to engage congregations within the city’s urban core in the work of preparing our students for future-readiness.  Over 50 pastors and youth pastors joined in to learn about the 95•0•3 goals (95% attendance, 0 office referrals, 3.0 Grade Point Average). This message is shared by church leaders and in church youth programs to make a positive impact on high school graduation rates, third-grade reading proficiency, suspensions, and expulsion, and preparing all students to achieve college, career, and life readiness.
