The Newark Alliance was founded to support the agenda of the Superintendent of the Newark Public Schools, and specifically to assist with improving public education in the city of Newark. Through collaboration with state organizations, institutions of higher education, and the local business community, we focus our combined resources on initiatives of high priority to the District. With school reform being a critical step to improving public education, the Newark Alliance supports various initiatives and programs to ultimately improve student achievement.
The Newark Alliance provides support to organizations and projects that advance our education mission and develop Newark's youth. Initiatives being supported include the Westside High School Finance Academy, the Newark Arts Education Roundtable and the Newark Mentoring Coalition.
The Newark Alliance supports the Newark Education Trust, an independent, non-profit organization, focused on ensuring the effective allocation of human, organizational, and financial resources in order to improve student achievement.
