Wisconsin Partnership Program awards $1M to One City Schools, UW-Madison education research team

Over the next five years, a team of early childhood educators and university evaluators will train teachers, as well as document and evaluate Madison’s innovative One City Schools.

This project is being supported via a $1 million community impact grant from the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

Founded by community leader Kaleem Caire as a nonprofit preschool in 2015 on the city`s south side, One City was approved last year as a UW System public charter school with plans to expand from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade. The school uses a unique, two-generation approach to empower students for success in school, life, and health while also addressing the needs of their parents and community members.
