The Spartan Promise Council is a collection of caring adults that work to connect community resources to the needs of children as identified by teachers and staff at a local school.

The goal of the Spartan Promise Council is to remove barriers to learning so that all students have the opportunity to achieve success through education.

The Spartan Promise Council will work to support our students through:

  • Meeting the physical needs of students which can stand in the way of academic achievement.

  • Providing more adult mentors for students.

  • Increasing opportunities for parental engagement.
