About Student Achievement Partners
We hold no intellectual property
Our goal is to create and disseminate high quality materials as widely as possible. All resources that we create are open source and available at no cost. We encourage states, districts, schools, and teachers to take our resources and make them their own.
We do not compete for state or district contracts
Ensuring that states and districts have excellent materials for teachers and students is a top priority. We do not compete for these contracts because we work with our partners to develop high quality RFPs that support the Common Core State Standards.
We do not accept money from publishers
We work with states and districts to obtain the best materials for teachers and students. We are able to independently advise our partners because we have no financial interests with any publisher of education materials. Our independence is essential to our work.
Student Achievement Partners is a nonprofit organization that assembles educators and researchers to design actions based on evidence that will substantially improve student achievement. Founded by three of the contributing authors of the Common Core State Standards, Student Achievement Partners is devoted to accelerating student achievement by all students by supporting effective and innovative implementation of the Common Core.
Student Achievement Partners played a leading role in development of the Common Core State Standards, a process that drew on the input of thousands of teachers, business leaders, researchers, and policymakers. As contributing authors of the Common Core State Standards, Student Achievement Partners helped ensure that the Standards were based on the best available evidence of what students need to know and be able to do in order to be ready for the demands of college and career.
Today, Student Achievement Partners supports successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards. Student Achievement Partners works closely with teachers on all the tools it develops, and makes all resources available at no cost to educators at our website: achievethecore.org.
