National Insight, Local Impact.

TNTP partners with more than 6,000 school systems across 39 states, and we bring our national perspective and expertise to the local level to co-create sustainable solutions with deep community roots. No two projects are the same.

Our regional consulting model allows us to build lasting partnerships with system leaders, educators, and communities. Most of our staff live in the communities and regions they serve. In every region, our goal is the same: to partner with school systems and communities to ensure that all students can reach their full potential and live lives of agency and choice.

National Insight, Local Impact.

Across the country, the need to improve students’ PK–12 experience is real and urgent—especially for students living in poverty, those with learning and thinking differences, and those who speak multiple languages.

An effective PK–12 education for every student holds the promise of solving our nation’s most pressing economic challenges. When students graduate from high school prepared for well-paid jobs, a technical college, or a two- or four-year college, everyone benefits. A poor education, in contrast, can dampen a child’s potential and hinder national competitiveness. 

Nationally, we uncover and understand big challenges in PK–12 education, then collaborate with school systems and communities on bold actions. Our work spans school systems large and small, from urban city centers to dispersed rural communities. In Moffat County, Colo., 2,000 students now work on grade-level math content more frequently. In Baltimore, Md., greater diversity in the workforce benefits 380,000 students. As we embrace a holistic approach, we bring more families, educators, and community partners into the conversation around school improvement.  

Since 2020, TNTP has reached an estimated 9,500 school systems and 30.5 million students nationwide.

In the Southeast region, TNTP has reached an estimated 6.9 million students since 2020.

Regional highlights:

  • In Tennessee, we partnered with the state department of education to launch Reading 360, an initiative that uses the science of reading to strengthen the reading skills of PK–12 students, drawing on the best research about how children learn to read. This exciting wraparound approach includes systematic foundational literacy, educator and leader preparation, instructional materials, training, coaching, and online and family resources.
  • We accelerated learning in 15 schools in the Southeast through a three-day professional learning summit, a diagnostic process that established student-centered goals, and math- and literacy-focused teacher coaching. Independent evaluations by Mathematica found that students showed significant positive gains in both literacy and math.
  • In June 2023, TNTP was selected by Impact Florida to partner in launching a cadre of five districts committed to increasing student outcomes in Algebra I. The districts are strengthening mathematics instruction in grades K–9, with an emphasis on ensuring the conditions for all students to succeed in math. Impact Florida and TNTP lead cross-district collaboration during in-person convenings and individualized support.

The Southeast region includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Puerto Rico.

Regional highlights:

  • TNTP has partnered with state education agencies (SEAs) in Nebraska, Kentucky, and Indiana to shape state-level visions, theories of action, and comprehensive multiyear strategies designed to improve teaching and learning, support school improvement, and drive systemic change.
  • We support districts in implementing high-quality instructional materials in ELA and math. Our work in Evansville and Indianapolis, Ind.; Peoria, Ill.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; and rural districts across Nebraska and Missouri support leaders in investing their teachers in curricula, deploying them for strong instruction, and increasing opportunities for student ownership.
  • Our Opportunity Accelerators in Milwaukee, Wis., and Kansas City focus on developing school leaders’ ability to identify and dismantle inequitable systems, while building new systems that result in greater student achievement.
  • Two of TNTP’s six Teaching Fellows programs, Indianapolis Teaching Fellows and Teach Minnesota, are in the Midwest. Each year, more than half of these programs’ recruits identify as BIPOC, increasing the likelihood that students of color in each state will have teachers of color during their PK–12 education. All students benefit from a diverse teacher workforce, demonstrating greater engagement, higher achievement, and cross-cultural interactions that can break down harmful stereotypes.

The Midwest region includes Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Pittsburgh, Pa.
