Equitable Outcomes

At New Visions, we care about equity and that means paying close attention to how schools work. The Portal is just one way that we advance our fundamental belief that building sustainable and reliable systems for supporting students is an urgent priority in public schools. Too often, inadvertent oversights and missed opportunities get in the way of student success. The unacceptable result is that black, latinx, and low-income students still do not have equitable opportunities to succeed in public schools or to transition successfully to college, careers, and choice-filled lives. The Portal aims to mitigate this with a reliable, transparent, and scalable system.
