The Greater Auburn-Gresham Development Corporation and the Auburn Gresham community has a strategy to improve the quality of education for people of all ages and help students and parents maximize the school experience. This tab will include information on our school and community based programs and activities.

We are excited about the work we are doing to improve schools in the community. The initiative we created with our community partners, that is currently in the works, called Auburn Gresham Gold (AG GOLD). There are five elementary school partners participating in the Auburn Gresham GOLD Initiative, they are:

Clara Barton Elementary School

John W. Cook Academy

Scott Joplin Elementary School

Richard J. Oglesby Elementary School

Westcott Elementary School

We look forward to working as a community to impact the first five schols that are participating. Implementation, Outreach, Planning and Fundraising continues. We look forward to an exciting year implementing the community-driven education plan.
