In concert with school districts and educators county-wide, SAM focuses on academic performance at critical learning stages along the “cradle to career” journey, from school readiness through post-secondary completion.  

SAM establishes achievement goals for each learning stage, and uses county-wide data to measure performance in the belief that we will get what we measure.  

SAM develops and supports “collaborative action networks” of educators and education non-profits, working together to achieve these academic goals.
