ABOUT OCOS

Our Children. Our Success. encourages our entire community to participate and invest in the lives, education and general wellbeing of our children. Everyone can agree that a community without a strong school system won’t attract quality workers and an undereducated workforce is a major roadblock to a flourishing Shelby County.

The core messages of the campaign are as follows:

*  We as a community are accountable for our children
*  Everyone benefits when we invest in education
*  Supporting teachers and students ensures a quality education
*  We’re re-imagining our approach to teaching and learning
*  Transparency fosters mutual trust
*  Let’s build a positive, shared belief that every child can succeed

Our Children. Our Success. is led by a coalition of nonprofit community partners that will help to push one main goal: to empower the public through transparency, disseminating accurate information regarding how we can all support our children.
