Who We Are

Marshall Street Initiatives

Marshall Street Initiatives (“Marshall”) understands that building an education system that serves all of our young people starts with redesigning K-12 schools - but it doesn't end there. With Summit, we showed what is possible when you build a school around the needs of a community. With Summit Learning, we showed what is possible when visionary educators across the country have tools and support to enact a vision of excellence for their communities. With the Teacher Residency Program, we showed that we're able to develop the excellent, diverse teachers that all students deserve. We're now expanding our work to certify and develop school leaders, equip parents with tools to prepare their children for fulfillment, provide access to a bachelor's degree and participation in jobs of the future at low cost, and expand opportunities for students with disabilities at schools across the country. Marshall harnesses the spirit of innovation that has always been at Summit and shares it with the world.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
