An important part of ARISE’s network of engagement, Strategic Action Teams (SAT) are where the sled runner meets the trail. Teams made up of parents, educators, community members, businesses and organizations develop an action plan to improve a particular ARISE data-based outcome, and commit one year to implementing the plan for measurable improvement. Teams will look at available data for Anchorage and then dig deeper – asking questions, seeking solutions, making discoveries, and, ultimately, achieving change.

Prepare for kindergarten with resources developed by the ARISE kindergarten preparedness SAT!

ARISE launched its first SAT in 2015, focusing on kindergarten preparedness and forming as an evolution of months of community engagement work with parents and families. The SATs are an excellent way to get involved with ARISE and positively impact Alaska Native students and academic success.
