The Memphis City Schools Foundation (MCSF) is comprised of volunteer community leaders who are committed to leading and initiating community efforts to help ensure that the quality of education for children in Memphis, TN is comparable to the finest schools in the country. MCSF was established in 2009 and serves as the fiscal agent for the Teacher Effectiveness Initiative and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation $90 million landmark grant awarded to the school district.
Revolutionizing Our Schools. Transforming Our City.
That is the goal of the Teacher Effectiveness Initiative (TEI). Acceptance of the Gates Grant ensured the revolution of our school system is under way. At the forefront of this revolution is an army of teachers, parents, administrators, policy makers, community leaders, principals, students - and last but not least, funders. At the heart of the revolution is an implementation plan with a razor sharp focus on improving teacher effectiveness and for the first time in our District’s history we have the skill set, the data, the willingness and the political landscape all positioned to culminate in real and systemic transformation.
