The RISE Network is driven by the creativity and dedication of hundreds of teachers, counselors, and administrators in our partner schools and districts. RISE expands access to resources and information to promote educator-led innovation.
RISE supports educators’ innovative ideas to promote on-track achievement and college and career readiness. We partner with Dalio Philanthropies and DonorsChoose to offer match funding for RISE educators who launch projects through the RISE Educator Innovation Fund. Since launching the Innovation Fund in 2016, RISE educators have designed 800+ projects, raising over $515,000 for materials and opportunities for their students.
Data Tools and Insights
Students and families deserve excellent public schools that provide students with engaging and enriching learning experiences that are responsive to their unique needs. Educators and administrators strive to help all students succeed, drawing on their professional expertise and available resources to provide personalized student supports that advance college and career readiness, access, and success. The RISE Network provides educators with the resources and data access they need as professionals. Data provide an important source of information to help educators and administrators meet student needs, while also empowering students with information about their growth and progress. RISE’s data tools empower educators with information to support student success and complement their professional expertise.
Strategy Guides and Resources
Through our partnership, we embrace evidence-based strategies and ideas informed by national research, educator expertise, student voice, and data insights. As we pilot new ideas and understand what works under which conditions, RISE is committed to extending our impact beyond the schools and students we directly serve by sharing resources and learnings with others around the state and country seeking to improve student engagement, on-track achievement, and postsecondary outcomes. Through the RISE Network strategy guides and our open-access resource portal, we are excited to share actionable ideas and tools with educators both in the network and beyond who are driving student success in their local communities.
