Penn Excellence & Equity Consortia


Delaware Valley Consortium for Excellence & Equity (DVCEE)

What would happen if networks of school districts came together to rethink equity and education? Check out this short video, by LionChaser Films, on the Penn GSE Consortia for Excellence and Equity to find out. Get in touch with us to find out how your school district can join the movement!

The Delaware Valley Consortium for Excellence & Equity (formerly the Delaware Valley Minority Student Achievement Consortium or DVMSAC) is a collaborative association of 36 school districts located throughout Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and northern Delaware, as well as several intermediate units, and the PA State Education Association.

DVCEE members are committed to working together to enhance the achievement and well-being of all of their students, and most specifically, to increasing the academic performance, engagement, and future success of their students of color, first-generation college attendees, students of economic disadvantage, and other traditionally marginalized student groups.

New Jersey Network to Close the Achievement Gaps- South (NJNCAG)

In 2007, the Educational Information and Resource Center (EIRC) and the Penn Center for Educational Leadership at the University of Pennsylvania collaborated to develop a proposal that would establish a regional network of school districts in New Jersey committed to actively reducing the gaps in achievement and school engagement between their African American and Latino/Latina students, and their Caucasian and Asian peers.

The New Jersey Network to Close the Achievement Gaps bases its work on the efforts of the Delaware Valley Minority Student Achievement Consortium, led by the Penn Center for Educational Leadership since 2004.
