The Alignment Collaborative for Education (ACE) is joined by 11 community partners that represent organizations within Elgin, Illinois and the greater School District U-46 community. These 12 partners represent organizations within the community that either have experience with leading collective impact initiatives and/or represent the strongest early-education subject-area expertise within the region.

Joining the NCGLR allows the 12 community partners to align around a shared Community Action Plan that addresses early education preparedness as early as birth to age 8. Each partner brings diverse expertise to the initiative varying from a before school age concentration to experience in the completion of elementary school and middle school preparation.
