Carla collaborated with the Tacoma Public Schools Board of Directors to adopt the district's first strategic plan in 2011 with four goal areas and 35 benchmarks of success. An advanced data system and a strong project management office insures transparency regarding that progress. All results are posted on the Tacoma Public School website. As Carla often says, "What gets measured gets done."
That strategic work has led to a growing number of unique partnerships, which have generated positive community support and results for the Tacoma school children. For example, a partnership with the Tacoma Housing Authority has provided housing vouchers for families of students at a low-income, high-mobility elementary school. The vouchers come with strings—parent involvement and housing stability—that benefit students.
Partnerships with three local, four-year colleges and universities, both public and private, have yielded gap financial funding for qualified low income students, priority admission to education programs with guaranteed teacher interviews at graduation from college, and a whole child district initiative designed to provide a sustainable system for ensuring high-quality social emotional learning for students PreK-12.
