"Breakthrough Schools is a proud member of the Cleveland Education Compact. We believe that our job is to work together with the district and other charters to improve education in Cleveland. The best way to do this is to work with each other on behalf of kids instead of staying in our silos. Good things will happen when smart, mission-driven people collaborate together for a common purpose."

John Zitzner Co-Founder, Breakthrough Schools & President of Friends of Breakthrough Schools

"CMSD embraces district-charter collaboration as a strategy for school improvement. While the Cleveland Plan enables the conditions for our work, the goals of the Cleveland Education Compact align with our broader reform plan to ensure quality school choices and increase academic achievement across the city."

Eric Gordon Chief Executive Officer, Cleveland Metropolitan School District

"I am excited about the potential of collaboration between the district and among charters and the impact this will have on students."

Marie Hanna Superintendent, Ohio Connections Academy

"We believe that all students, regardless of socioeconomic status are able to learn and achieve at the highest levels when provided with a school that is designed and prepared to teach, support, and hold them to high expectations. GALA addresses the inequities we currently see in outcomes for low-income students and students of color in Cleveland. All of the components of GALA are strategically designed to eradicate these achievement gaps, increase achievement, increase high school graduation rates and ensure students are globally competitive, college, career and life ready.”
