Network member since 2014

The Alignment Collaborative for Education (ACE) is a collective impact organization serving the 11 northwestern Illinois communities around U-46.

The mission of ACE is to align community resources in support of public school strategies to raise student achievement, improve the health and happiness of our children, create responsible, productive and contributing members of our society, and advance the economic and social well-being of our community.

ACE envisions all students starting kindergarten prepared to learn, reading at grade level by 3rd grade, graduating from high school with marketable employment skills and/or enrolling in post- secondary education. They will leave high school prepared to be contributing adults eager to live and work in their community.
