"The biggest challenge for our region is making sure our greatest assets - the diverse young people who are growing up here - are set up for success." 
-Tony Mestres, president and CEO of the  Seattle Foundation
The Road Map Project's latest report on the state of education in King County's areas of highest need shows some progress, but  much more work needs to be done to close race and ethnic opportunity and achievement gaps.

As the greater Seattle area experiences historic economic growth, about 740,000 job openings are expected in the next five years, many of the Road Map Project region's families are not sharing in the prosperity. Poverty has shifted out of Seattle as housing prices continue to climb, and since the project began in 2010,  the homeless student population has more than doubled from 2,000 to nearly 4,5000.

While the Results Report is a snapshot of the Road Map region's progress, the online data dashboard provides even more information at the school, district and regional level. This interactive tool allows a deeper dive for additional insights into data presented in this report, as well as a look at how outcomes and demographics have shifted by race/ethnicity, income, housing status, gender, language and ability status since 2010.


 


The Road Map Project is a region-wide effort aimed at improving education to drive dramatic improvement in student achievement from cradle to college and career in South King County and South Seattle. 

The Road Map Project is supported by the Community Center for Education Results (CCER), a nonprofit organization.
