Mayor's Education Coalition

Shortly after taking office as Mayor of Arlington, Mayor Jim Ross brought together representatives of both public and private educational institutions to form a coalition focusing on the educational needs of our community. The members of the Mayor’s Education Coalition continue to work together to share thoughts and ideas and build relationships among our community educators. In addition, we are also focused on developing strategies that would support and reinforce the educational possibilities in our area.

About Our Logo

At the heart of the Mayor's Education Coalition is community partnership.

The logo represents the outcomes we expect from strong community partnerships that will provide every Arlington citizen access to excellent educational and career opportunities. The golden character represents the businesses, nonprofits, educational and governmental institutions of Arlington and surrounding areas locking arms with the students (blue character with graduation cap) enrolled in the many outstanding public and private institutions of learning from childcare organizations all the way through college. Together, they form the familiar Arlington star which shines brighter (golden star points) when our diverse community works together (#WeAreArlington).

The characters and star rest on a representation of a book of knowledge whose pages move out in different directions. This is to signify that our strong foundation comes from recognizing that each student has an individual path to take (traditional, college, work study, trades training) and each partner is part of the success of an individual student.
