Personal Characteristics

Schools That Can Milwaukee, Inc. (STCM; was founded in July of 2010 with a vision to grow from 2,000 to over 20,000 students in high-performing Milwaukee schools by 2020.  Leading an unprecedented cross-sector collaboration of talented leaders from district, charter and private schools serving predominantly low-income students, STCM is intensely pursuing three strategies:  1) Expand and Replicate Local High-Performing Schools; 2) Develop High-Potential Schools into High-Performing Schools; and 3) Recruit High-Performing School Networks & Leaders to Milwaukee.  No strategy alone is the answer, but the combination of the three is transformational.  Today, STCM is working with 24 traditional public, charter and private schools serving more than 10,000 students and driving towards excellence.  In February 2012, after a highly competitive national process, Rocketship Education announced Milwaukee would be their first national expansion city.  Schools That Can Milwaukee led the high-impact collaborative effort to recruit Rocketship.
