Excellent Schools Detroit

Excellent Schools Detroit (ESD) formed in 2010 as a coalition with an important mission: an excellent education for every Detroit child, from cradle to career, by 2020 such that 90% of students are well-prepared for kindergarten, 90% graduate from high school on time, 90% go on to post-secondary programs and 90% of those do so without needing remediation.


Early Childhood & Education Continuum Data Infrastructure Development: This grant strengthens ESD’s early childhood strategies through data initiatives focused on early learning talent development, collective impact, stakeholder alignment, and parent engagement.

Early Educator Professional Development & Coaching Pilot: Partnering with The New Teacher Project (TNTP)—a national expert in training educators—this grant supports participants in learning effective teaching practices for establishing strong classroom culture and an environment for high academic expectation.
