What We Do
We work side by side with teachers and leaders to improve the quality of instruction in core academics. We don’t lecture or push programs. Instead, we use a tailored, collaborative process to strengthen content, teaching and student engagement.
School & District Partnerships
We partner with schools and districts to support academic growth. We work with school teams through cycles of improvement, starting with observation to understand the strengths and needs, reflecting on the academic strategy and helping the team develop and work through a nuts-and-bolts action plan. We specialize in smaller school districts, which may have limited capacity but can make big changes—fast.
We provide deep-dive professional development for educators. Our PD is intensely-focused and content-specific, such as practical support for 4th grade teachers wanting more help with fractions. We target common needs, so schools don’t have to do it all on their own. This isn’t limited to just teachers. With in-person and virtual structures, we also provide training and support for coaches, principals and CAOs.
District leaders, principals, and teachers say that our approach has helped them achieve goals they’ve known were possible but lacked the strategies to reach. The results go beyond just higher test scores. Schools and districts that have partnered with us say they have seen major improvements in student and staff engagement. Over 18 months, the percent of positive lessons in our partner schools has climbed from 12 percent to 30 percent. And our partners find relief and hope as they get help with their hardest instructional challenges. 87% of partners recommend us to their colleagues.
