GO Public Schools is a multi-city organization of local networks, working with families, educators, and community members to create schools driven by the needs of students today — not by practices and structures designed for schools of the past. Currently, GO supports networks of leaders in the Fresno, Oakland, and West Contra Costa communities, and they are supported through both GO Public Schools (a 501c3) and GO Public Schools Advocates (a 501c4). GO envisions a day when schools prepare all children for success in our rapidly evolving world, creating an equitable path to opportunity in our communities.
GO develops leadership at every level — families, educators, school boards, district leaders, and grasstops. These leaders inform and develop community visions for student success, and they shape, demand, and win system changes that improve student learning. Over the next ten years, GO plans to scale its impact significantly, growing its multi-city organization of local networks and overall state platform — impacting 500,000 students by 2026 and fully leveraging the strength of local GO sites to create significant state-level policy and political wins.
