A COMMUNITY-WIDE MOVEMENT

Over 350 partners aligning goals, data, and resources to help every child achieve success from cradle to career.

Our Community Goal

Building for 2030

By 2030, 70 percent of Tacoma Public Schools students will earn a degree, technical certificate, or gain a good-earning wage employment opportunity within six years of high school graduation. Targeted efforts will focus on students of color and those impacted by poverty.

Success will require meaningful cross-sector alignment and partnership, data-sharing and accountability, targeted resourcing, advocating for racially just practices, and maintaining progress on all indicators, cradle to career.

Pierce County Pathways

As a community, we believe it’s our responsibility to create support systems for student success. Pierce County Pathways is a coordinated system of supports enabling postsecondary success and economic mobility for all students.
