Berkeley's 2020 Vision: Equity in Education


Berkeley’s 2020 Vision is based on the collective impact model where entities across a wide variety of sectors come together to solve a specific large-scale, social problem through a defined collaborative process.[1]  

Partnership Structure: The image below depicts the overall structure of Berkeley’s 2020 Vision’s partnership and how we organize our work.

        How we organize our work    

The Leadership Team provides overall vision and leadership for Berkeley’s 2020 Vision. It is comprised of top decision makers from each of the initiative’s core partner organizations, along with leaders of the Berkeley Community Fund and Berkeley Public Schools Fund, and several founding partners of Berkeley’s 2020 Vision

The Alignment and Coordination Team (ACT), comprised of 2020 Vision staff, Work Group leads (see below), and senior leaders and staff from partner organizations, supports and serves as a bridge between the Work Groups and the Leadership Team.  

2020 Vision’s Work Groups are comprised of community practitioners and experts, who organize their work together around one of Berkeley’s 2020 Vision’s priorities. There are currently active Work Groups organized around three 2020 Vision priorities: Kindergarten Readiness, 3rd Grade Reading Proficiency, and College and Career Readiness.

Role of the City Manager’s Office: The City of Berkeley fulfills the critical backbone function for this collective impact partnership, coordinating and organizing work of the designated 2020 Vision liaisons from BUSD, BCC, and UC Berkeley, and many others. Housed in the City Manager’s Office, 2020 Vision staff are also responsible for overseeing 2020 Vision’s RFP and contracting process with community agencies that deliver programs and services to advance the goals of 2020 Vision.
