Solutions for Success

We have countless examples from districts and schools that have committed to a cycle of excellence. This has helped them to:

  • Create a single district framework that serves as the foundation for the work of all educators and staff. 
  • Ensure power and authority are shared within a system of bounded autonomy. 
  • Create a system of pressure and support that holds all stakeholders accountable.  
  • Provide targeted professional learning and coaching for school, district, and community leaders.  
  • Communicate a message of results to create urgency and action.
