Our Approach

People

We invest in the development of educators through relevant, interactive and coherent professional learning, coaching, and ongoing support.

  • Relevant – We recognize that educators are professionals who want to learn and grow. Because of this, we seek opportunities to bring authentic choices and customization to our work with each school.
  • Interactive – Too often, traditional approaches to professional development are ineffective because they are done to educators. Our approach is different because we work with educators.
  • Coherent –Teaching and running a school system are complex and sophisticated endeavors requiring consistency. Our work with educators is designed to be ongoing and carefully aligned, that is what school transformation requires.

Process

We use rapid improvement cycles because we understand the urgency of our work.
