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 non-profit organization founded by philanthropic, civic, and education leaders to transform education in Philadelphia. PSP invests in the creation and expansion of high-performing schools in all sectors—traditional public, charter, and private—to achieve the goal of every child in every neighborhood of Philadelphia attending a great school. PSP believes that there are great schools of all types, but leadership is an essential ingredient to any high-performing school. PSP serves as the project manager of the Great Schools Compact Committee. The committee was established to oversee initiatives pursued under the Compact, including the development of a residency-based program to prepare aspiring leaders for urban school leadership.

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 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."
