10/16/12

Elev8, a national full-service community school model implemented in several cities across the country, was selected as a Together for Tomorrow Challenge Champion by the U.S. Department of Education and the Corporation for National and Community Service.
 
It was recognized for its community school sites in Baltimore and Chicago. Elev8 was one of 24 initiatives named a Together for Tomorrow Challenge Champion, a competition that recognizes exemplary educational models that create innovative school and community partnerships to turn around low-performing schools.
 
"Elev8 is a model for what can be achieved when communities come together to improve the outcomes for students and families," said Stephen McConnell, Country Director for U.S. Programmes at The Atlantic Philanthropies which funds Elev8.
