Mobile Area Education Foundation

Chandra C. Scott is the Director of Strategic Outcomes for the Mobile Area Education Foundation in Mobile, AL. She has provided strategic direction and branding as an advocate for education equality for more than 15 years. This experience equipped Scott to serve on the leadership team for the State’s first Charter School, ACCEL Day and Evening Academy.

Through Scott’s leadership, Mobile, AL is one of 75 cities to receive funding from Lumina Foundation to implement the Community Partnership for Attainment grant and is the only city in its cohort of 25 cities to receive the Community Partnership for Attainment Best Practice Expo Award.

Scott has earned a certificate in Excellence in Nonprofit Leadership and Management from Michigan State University, and a bachelor’s in chemistry from Xavier University in New Orleans, LA. She was also selected by America’s Promise Alliance to complete the Data Leadership Initiative at Tuft’s University in Boston, MA.

Chandra Scott led the launch of the Alabama’s first post-secondary attainment goal and blueprint in January 2017 known as 75,000 Degrees in Mobile, AL. The impact of this work positioned Mobile to be 1 of 24 cities to earn the Talent Hub designation by Lumina Foundation in May 2018.

Scott is a graduate of Coastal Leadership Alabama and serves on boards of community organizations locally and throughout the state.

She and her husband, Loren, have been married since 2004. They have two children–a twelve year old daughter Leah and a five year old son Logan.

What interests you?

15 to Finish

Boost the number of students who are on track for on-time graduation by encouraging enrollment in 15 credits each semester (30 credits per year, including summers). Financial aid dollars, as well as institutional process and practice, should support that standard.

Math Pathways

Ensure all students enroll in and complete gateway math in their first year by designing math courses that are aligned with the skills students need for their chosen program of study.

Corequisite Support

Increase gateway course completion within the first year by enrolling entering students into the college-level math and English courses, providing those who need additional help a concurrent course or lab that offers just-in-time academic support.

Momentum Year

Build momentum so students meet first-year benchmarks: informed choice of meta major or major, enrollment in 30 credits with nine in the program of study and completion of gateway courses. Provide early support and guidance for decision making, using interest assessments and labor-market data.

Academic Maps with Proactive Advising

Default students onto highly-structured academic maps that include 15 credits per semester (or 30 per year), indicate milestone and pre-requisite courses, and empower advisors to effectively monitor progress and provide intervention as needed.

A Better Deal for Returning Adults

Increase degree attainment by inviting adult learners back to complete their education, providing a redesigned system that offers accelerated courses, year-round enrollment and predictable schedules. Give credit for prior learning and experience and additional support to help students navigate the system.
