About the APEX Project

The “Action Plan for Educational Excellence,” or APEX, Project will ensure a brilliant future for all students in our community by putting educational equity at the forefront of conversations and decision making.

The goals are to create a plan that addresses these inequities and fight to see that plan implemented by our elected officials and education decision-makers. Learn More >

This plan must represent the diverse experiences and ideas from across our county to be successful, so we invite all voices to be heard!

Here’s how you can be involved:
