Community Engagement, Collective Impact, Case Studies, Sylvia Cheuy

June 2018 marked the culmination of months of research, conversation and community discussions led by two collaborative initiatives in Rockford Illinois – Transform Rockford and Alignment Rockford – who have united their efforts to ensure that all third grade students in their community are reading at or above the third grade level.

This case study shares the story of two collective impact initiatives in Rockford Illinois which have teamed up to mobilize their community using an interactive data walk process to create deeper, shared understanding of the issue and begin building a common agenda to achieve this key educational milestone.
