When CEP launched in 2015, only 6,100 students in San Antonio's urban core attended schools with a TEA Rating of "A" or "B". In 2018-19, that number of students increased to 34,178. With the strength of our partners, we have achieved major accomplishments the past six years. We have more to do, together, though.
SINCE 2015, WE HAVE INVESTED OVER $40 Million To Support San Antonio’s Education Ecosystem. Together we have:
Created 14,064 high quality seats within San Antonio's urban core.
Recruited teachers to the urban core through Educate210.
Trained 500 parents through CEP initiatives.
Empowered 410 educators to receive a Master's degree through RELAY Graduate School of Education.
Provided 1750 families and students access to home WiFi through the Connected Beyond the Classroom initiative.
WHY INVEST IN EDUCATION
According to the Brookings Institute, wages of college graduates grow faster with city size than do wages of those without college degrees. In addition, highly educated workers adapt more readily to new technologies and are better able than less-educated workers to thrive in large cities where those technologies are more available. High-tech industries, high-skilled manufacturing industries, and finance industries often require a college education.
Creating lasting change within San Antonio's education ecosystem requires a multi-faceted approach. Over the past six years, CEP has implemented innovative programs aimed at investing in student success from the classroom to the living room.
CREATING HIGH QUALITY
Creating high quality schools takes time, effort, and community involvement. By investing in turnaround schools, incubating new schools, and scaling successful programs, we work to expand innovative models for families across the city.
EMPOWERING PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS
Great schools require community involvement. As an organization dedicated to equity, we are focused on ensuring parent empowerment through the provision of San Antonio School Finder, PASEO, and MindShiftED.
CREATING SUPPORT STRUCTURES
It is critical that schools and families have the tools they need to create an environment where children can flourish. To achieve long-term classroom success, City Education Partners is dedicated to making investments that create a more equitable and accessible system.
