Central Florida’s leaders in education, with funding from Helios Education Foundation, launched the Central Florida Education Ecosystem Database (CFEED), a research project intended to increase student success by enhancing student learning, increase academic achievement, and ultimately outline a supportive, continuous pathway toward education success.

The collaboration, which engages Orange County Public Schools, the school district of Osceola County, Valencia College, and the University of Central Florida, launched CFEED to link partners, data, and highlight opportunities for student support all along the education ecosystem.

 “The opportunity to understand how individual students experience the educational pathway from K-12 through to completion of a post-secondary credential will enable educators to design interventions that elevate student success at key transition points, and overall student completion,” said Joyce Romano, Ph.D., vice president for educational partnerships, Valencia College.

CFEED in one example of innovation in education that centers on students success. Helios Education Foundation’s commitment to the transformational power of education and the power of partnerships led the Foundation to launch its Florida Regional Student Success Initiative in 2017, which concentrates in the metropolitan areas of Tampa, Orlando, and Miami. We believe that every student, regardless of ZIP code, deserves a high-quality education.

Through our collaboration with partners in Central Florida, and statewide, we focus on preparing students for success in college, career, and life.

Helios furthers its work through strategic investing, building and reforming systems, public and political will building, and collaborating and convening all along the education continuum.
