Say Yes to Education nonnegotiable agreement with Syracuse school district

When Say Yes to Education agreed to partner with the Syracuse School District, it didn't just give money and support.  
The foundation insisted the district sign a nonnegotiable agreement detailing several steps the district must take. 
The initiative's progress had to be transparent.  Without those guarantees, Say Yes wouldn't provide funds.
