Appraisal and Root Cause Analysis

Using an assets-based approach, we collect and examine data from a variety of sources to identify school systems’ strengths, needs, and barriers. Our protocols guide school systems to identify the root cause(s) of the challenges they face.

Leadership Coaching

Our leadership coaches provide educational leaders with expert assistance to learn and practice new skills and problem solve barriers to implementation.

Instructional Coaching

Through our Collaborative Coaching model we assist teachers to better meet the needs of their students.

Professional Learning

Our professional learning is structured to prioritize customization and feedback. All of our partners receive technology enhanced materials that support individual and group learning endeavors.

Technical Assistance

We pride ourselves on being realistic and relentlessly helpful as our partners bridge the gap between well written plans and lasting improvements. This includes development of a theory of action, 90-day plans, and narrow focus proposals.

Personalized Learning

Student-centered schools develop proficiency-based learning paths for each student, nurture the interests and goals of each student, facilitate collaborative work, and connect students with teachers in meaningful ways. Ed Direction assists partner schools to implement personalized learning. We are proud to be a preferred implementation partner of Summit Learning.
