CYCLE’s Past Projects
Positive & Safe Schools Advancing greater equity (PASSAGE)
Through Positive and Safe Schools Advancing Greater Equity (PASSAGE), CYCLE staff have supported districts and communities working together to reduce discipline disparities and promote positive approaches to school discipline.
Pittsburgh parent power
Pittsburgh Parent Power arose in 2014 to build the capacity of community-based organizations to support parents to lead equity-oriented school reform efforts affecting Pittsburgh Public Schools.
Teacher leadership & Advocacy for Education Policy
Published while CYCLE staff were still at the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University, Agency into Action: Teachers as Leaders and Advocates for Public Education, Communities, and Social Justice, was the result of a research field scan and landscape analysis about teacher leadership and advocacy for education policy. Organizations and efforts across the country are working towards a model of leadership in which teachers can collectively assert their influence on policy through their own voice, expertise both inside and outside of classrooms and schools, and advocacy.
Vermont educational equity Policy briefs
In 2018, The Bay and Paul Foundations supported CYCLE to create a series of equity-focused educational briefs to inform the Vermont Education Equity Project (VEEP). VEEP’s mission is to examine systemic inequities faced by school-aged youth in Vermont's public schools, as well as possible solutions, and develop a policy agenda.
