Achieve Escambia's Collective Action Networks (CAN)
Collective Action Networks
In 2016, Achieve Escambia and its partners identified four goals that all participants agreed would bring lasting change into our community.
Each goal has a community-led Collection Action Network driving the implementation of continuous improvement.
The four goals are:
Kindergarten Readiness (CAN launched Spring 2016)
Career Readiness (CAN launched Fall 2017)

Groups of appropriate cross-sector practicioners and individuals who organize around a community-level outcome. They use the continuous improvement process to develop a charter and an action plan with strategies to improve outcomes.
1. Verify Outcomes & Indicators
2. Map moving trains
3. Identify partner outcomes
4. Prioritize contributing indicators
5. Indentify bright spots/opportunities
6. Align Resources & action; SCALE!
7. Continually improve
Steps with-in the Process:
As the CAN work progresses, individual indicators may require a more in-depth approach to ensure the overall CAN's success. As a result, Indicator Task Forces (ITF) may be set up to address the needs that arise. The ITF's are a crucial part in our continuous change process and are community-driven. Many of our partners invest additional time and resources to take part in this segment of the work.
Indicator Task Force Organization and Leadership
The ITFs function as sub-teams within each Collective Action Network; organized around each prioritized contributing indicator on the Achieve Escambia cradle-to-career roadmap.
Body of Work:
Asset map existing work/efforts
Determine who else needs to be included in ITF
Review the data; disaggregate by geography, race, gender, etc.
Identify What Additional Information is Needed

Explore bright spots from here and elsewhere
Identify existing baseline metric(s) – Set goal(s)
Target cohort vs. population-wide goals
Build out Action Plan(s) for each Strategy
Present the Action Plan to Operational Support Team & Leadership Council to solicit additional buy-in, organizational commitment, and access to resources– refine as needed
Lead implementation of Action Plan
Monitor and refine the Action Plan
