Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable

The Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable, a WestEd initiative funded with support from The Helios Education Foundation, brings together mayors from throughout Arizona who share ways to positively impact education in their towns and cities. District superintendents and their key staff also convene to share data, evidence-based and promising practices, and programmatic strategies that can help address local challenges affecting the long-term success of every student.

The framework for the work of the Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable is ensuring student readiness for the transition to college and career with the understanding that individual cities may work to reach that goal in different ways, depending on individual school, district, and community priorities.

Arizona Mayors Education Dashboards

The 2018 Arizona Mayors Education Dashboards report presents profiles for each of the cities and towns whose mayors are members of the Roundtable. The profiles present data showing the estimated economic losses associated with high school non-completion and youth disconnection (young people who are neither in school nor working) in each locality. Read the 2018 Arizona Mayors Education Dashboards report. Read the explanatory guide that accompanies the report.

Mayors throughout Arizona developed data-informed action plans to support improved outcomes in their cities.
