Forming in the same way many nonprofits do, Educate Midland created to combat a growing community issue.
Despite Midland’s time-honored tradition of quality service and high-level performance, community leaders, parents, and educators began to notice a downturn in many of Midland’s educational success metrics.
This downturn was the result of a teacher shortage and an outdated outlook on student readiness throughout many grade levels. Through community collaboration by individuals involved with education, a plan was set in place to help ensure the success of students in the Midland school system. From this plan, Educate Midland was born with a clear purpose.
Operating as both a nonprofit and as a community initiative, Educate Midland’s mission is to empower and align the whole community by connecting people, ideas, and resources to create opportunities for all students to achieve their highest educational potential.
