Our Partners

PhillyPLUS is a partnership between Philadelphia School Partnership, the Great Schools Compact, and TNTP.

Philadelphia School Partnership

Philadelphia School Partnership (PSP) is a nonprofit organization that funds the creation and expansion of high-quality K-12 schools in the City of Philadelphia to give more children access to a great education. PSP also facilitates the sharing of best practices among school leaders that improve the quality of education for students. PSP is raising $100 million in philanthropic funds to provide grants for the transformation, growth and startup of high-performing public and private schools in Philadelphia. It measures success by the number of students in Philadelphia who move out of failing schools to better-quality school options based on student academic outcomes.

Great Schools Compact

The Great Schools Compact is a joint commitment of school providers and education leaders to ensure that policies, strategies and resources align to a common goal of providing a high-performing school option for every child. The Compact is signed by the School District of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools, Philadelphia Charters for Excellence, the Mayor's Office of Education, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as a commitment to share responsibility and work together to expand high-quality K-12 school options and dramatically reduce the number of chronically underperforming schools by 2016-17. Visit the Great Schools Compact website for more information.

TNTP

TNTP believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. A national nonprofit founded by teachers, TNTP helps school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. TNTP works at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning. Since 1997, TNTP has partnered with more than 200 public school districts, charter school networks and state departments of education, and have recruited or trained more than 50,000 teachers. Today, TNTP is active in more than 30 cities.

"If you are willing to lead differently and embrace the inherent growth that comes with being uncomfortable, PLUS affords you a safe space to do just that."
