Road Map Logo

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.



Are you interested in education data specific to your district or community?

The 2014 district reports -- available now -- go beyond the 2014 Results Report by diving into education results for each of the Road Map Project school districts (Auburn, Federal Way, Highline, Kent, Renton, south-end Seattle and Tukwila). The data presented are intended to help communities understand successes and challenges, and to spark action.

Small Grants Fund supporting summer literacy projects 


In service to advancing the regional efforts aimed at promoting summer learning, the Road Map Project Small Grants Fund is now accepting proposals for family engagement projects focused on supporting literacy for young children and their families during summer (June through August).


The Small Grants Fund is administered by CCER and the Community Network. The fund supports family engagement-focused projects and efforts that build the capacity and leadership of local grassroots organizations and community stakeholders to participate in improving education results within South Seattle and South King County. Awards range from $500 to $5,000, and applications are reviewed monthly. The Let's Read! summer reading campaign team is ready to help in any way to make these projects successful.

Youth lead discussion on data

More than 20 youth ages 16-24 came together on March 10 to review and discuss education data reported in the 2014 Road Map Project Results Report. Participating youth are members of SOAR's King County Youth Advisory Council and represent the Highline, Seattle, Renton, Tukwila, Shoreline and Kent school districts as well as several local community colleges and employment training programs, such as Year Up. Many of the youth have direct or close experiences with being disconnected from school.


Young people from the council explained the data to their peers and facilitated small-group discussions about three questions: Root causes and other factors that contribute; what teachers, administrators and policymakers can do; and what young people can do. In order to go deep in one area, youth chose one of three topics -- early literacy, discipline and college enrollment -- to focus on.



STEM campaign begins April 1

here is a big STEM campaign launching soon in our region! The South King County STEM Network is partnering with to launch an "Almost Home" campaign to support math and science classroom projects throughout the Road Map Project region.


As part of the campaign, eligible math or science projects posted to will be funded down to $98. In other words: If an eligible project can get $98 in crowd-sourced funding, this "Almost Home" campaign takes care of the rest! Please click here to see a PDF of the eligibility criteria. The campaign will run from April 1 to 30.


As a reminder, the "Teacher Friends & Family" campaign that was launched last month to mark the 2014 Results Report release is still going on! You can read more about that opportunity by clicking here.
