What is our mission?
A family-first education ecosystem
The Community Education Commission (CEC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in May 2018 by Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
In response to the more than 30,000 students that leave Detroit every day to attend school outside of the city, Mayor Duggan sought to work with education leaders, families, and educators to develop new resources that help to retain students in the city.
Since its inception, the CEC has invested in innovative initiatives that increase access to afterschool enrichments and transportation, and provide transparent information about Detroit schools.
The CEC works to create a family-first education ecosystem in the City of Detroit
Our mission is to increase access to quality education for all Detroit families. Working with diverse stakeholders across the city, CEC develops critical resources and systems-level solutions that address common challenges faced by Detroit families, such as access to information and access to enrichment programming.
The CEC currently administers two signatures programs in an effort to increase access to quality education for Detroit families.
GOAL Line addresses the aim to improve access to high quality enrichment experiences while the Detroit Schools Guide seeks to provide access to transparent information.
Community Education Commission’s board members include a cross-section of leaders representing Detroit’s diverse education landscape, including Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD), charter schools, the teacher’s union, philanthropy, community organizations, teachers, and parents.
CEC holds four board meetings every year. CEC Board meetings are open to the public and interested citizens are encouraged to attend.
