Leading the charge to make the change.

Changing the way we approach education in Louisville takes a concerted effort from the entire community. It also takes strong, committed leaders who inspire action and guide us toward our goals.

These are the organizations who have pledged to collaborate, communicate, and share data to align goals, metrics and resources of their respective entities to the common goals of Evolve502.
