FIVE IMPROVEMENT ESSENTIALS FORM THE FOUNDATION FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT
We help schools purposefully improve in five essential areas: human capital, curriculum planning, lesson delivery, school & classroom procedures, and school culture. Without this foundation, improvement is far less likely to happen.
A mission-aligned human capital management system for recruitment, selection, hiring and training.
A comprehensive curriculum design process utilizing the backwards planning model.
Lessons with a laser-like focus on student achievement using the gradual release model of instruction.
SCHOOL & CLASSROOM PROCEDURES
Procedures that maximize learning time with students.
A positive, joyous school culture enables rigorous and engaging learning to thrive.
IMPROVEMENT SCIENCE IS A SIMPLE BUT POWERFUL MODEL FOR IMPROVEMENT
Talk of education reform is everywhere, but few people seem happy with the state of school improvement. Genuine user-centered change efforts are few and far between. Most change efforts are done to teachers instead of with them. That’s why we developed our improvement science process. Designed specifically for high-poverty schools, the goal is to develop the necessary know-how within your organizational context for change ideas to spread faster and more effectively.
