Mission and Vision
Our MissionTurning the Page links D.C. public schools, families and our community so that, together, we can ensure D.C. students receive valuable educational resources and a high-quality public education.
Our VisionTurning the Page is confident that with hard work and continued cooperation, we as a community can make sure D.C. public school students receive every opportunity to succeed in school and in life. Turning the Page's most important belief is in D.C. public school students themselves: Every child has the potential to achieve, if given the resource-rich learning environment that families, schools and community members can provide.
Our RoleTurning the Page supports and leverages school community stakeholders' distinct roles, talents and resources.
Teachers and PrincipalsPrincipals and teachers face many challenges every day in their schools. They often don't have the time or skills needed to connect with parents and community organizations on a regular basis. Turning the Page enables teachers and principals to build upon their skills through extensive training and support and to create infrastructures within the school for successfully integrating community talent and resources into their instructional programs.
ParentsFamily involvement is fundamental to students' success, and many D.C. parents can benefit from additional support, training and resources. Turning the Page provides parents with new skills and resources that enable them to become more effective educators of their children at home, advocates for their children in school and leaders within their school community.
D.C. Organizations and CitizensD.C. is a vibrant, resource-rich community with talented individuals and exciting programs at dozens of museums, universities, community-based social service organizations and businesses that share our commitment to education and collaboration. Turning the Page brings these community members together through numerous strategic partnerships, ensuring that their talents and resources have the greatest possible impact on the D.C. public school students who need them most.
Our CommitmentSince its founding, Turning the Page has earned the trust of the school community by focusing its efforts on the delivery of high quality educational resources - and on always delivering on our word, day after day. We believe in the importance of consistency, having worked tirelessly over the last few years to build supports and programs that D.C. public school parents, children and community members can rely upon.
