Inspire340 Networks

Supporting Inspire340 schools using the whole child, whole school, whole community model.

What are Inspire340 Schools?

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS) serves about 55,000 students with the goal of providing a quality education for each child. The school system has 42 elementary schools, 14 middle schools, and 15 high schools. Nine special schools bring the systemwide total to 80. 

Inspire340 is a network of 14 elementary schools that are identified as having third grade literacy proficiency below 40% and in need of intensive district support.

What are The Forsyth Promise’s Inspire340 Networks?

In 2021, The Forsyth Promise is partnering with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools in an effort to support eight Inspire340 schools using the whole child, whole school, whole community model. Through this partnership, we are working within each school to build a stakeholder network that includes school leadership, educators and staff, parents, caregivers, students, and community members at large. These networks will collaborate to identify the most pressing needs of each school, and work together to build an action plan that taps into community assets to meet these needs.
