Improvement is, in essence, progress along a continuum of performance.

Schools and systems need:

  • effective ways of gathering and understanding evidence of current performance
  • evidence-based strategies to address next steps in improvement
  • ways of monitoring and reflecting on improvement over time.

We assist with the complex process of school improvement by providing high-quality services and tools to assist systems leaders and principals.
