Achievement Gap Task Force

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The San Diego County Office of Education established the Achievement Gap Task Force (AGTF) in 2003 to ensure every student graduates high school prepared to succeed in college and career. This countywide collaboration, which includes the superintendents of the county’s 42 school districts as well as local education and business leaders, meets throughout the year to discuss the trends and patterns reflecting opportunity gaps for students.

The next AGTF meeting of superintendents and stakeholders is Feb. 1, 2017, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the San Diego County Office of Education, Boardroom 508.

Superintendents' and School Leaders' Forum



The task force hosts forums twice a year to bring student voice to the forefront of conversations and decision-making, and share practices that work to increase equity and access for all students by eliminating opportunity gaps.

The San Diego County Achievement Gap Task Force has been praised throughout the state for its innovative work and its commitment to ensuring the success of each and every student.

In October, AGTF Chair Kevin Holt and Sweetwater Union Superintendent Karen Janney and SDCOE representatives Jean Madden-Cazares and Erin Richison presented at the preeminent College Board Forum on the efforts of the Task Force. Click here to view the presentation.
