DTO Quality Education  

About Us

The Duval Transformation Office (DTO) was developed in 2013 with a goal to provide quality education to the students of the 36 historically low-performing schools in the Raines, Ribault, and Jackson high school feeder patterns. In a three year period, due to the great work in the DTO schools, 13 schools have been added to the DTO Region with a total of 49 schools. 

This region includes 18,046 students in 40 elementary schools, 5 middle schools, 1 K-8 school, and 3 high schools. Serving a student population that is 78% African American, 13% Caucasian, 3% Multi-racial,5% Hispanic, 1% American Indian, 1% Hawaiian/ PI, and 1% Asian  with 72% qualifying for free/reduced lunch.

Together with Superintendent Nikolai Vitti and vital community partnerships, Assistant Superintendent Iranetta R. Wright seeks to transform these schools through creating a culture of academic and behavioral success, developing a team of proven and passionate urban educators and leaders, limiting operational obstacles to focus on student learning, and holding herself, schools, and students accountable for performance.

 Armed with $50 million from private investors and independent research compiled by the Bridgespan Group, Quality Education for All (QEA) seeks to systematically transform 36 traditionally low- performing schools through investment in human capital. Paramount to the DTO Initiatives include establishment of a highly- effective oversight office within the district, monetary incentives for high- performing educators, a pipeline of competent leaders through partnerships with Columbia University and Teach for America,  high- level relationships with City- Year and creation of a Jacksonville Teacher Residency program.  In the DTO Region current markers of QEA success within the 36 schools include an overall increase in student proficiency rates, all of the schools showing an improvement in schools accountability grades, an increase of high- performing teachers, and Gallup student survey score increases in areas of hope, well- being, engagement, and satisfaction.
