Whole-School Transformation

 

Holistic, Sustained School Improvement 

Our whole-school transformation solution builds site capacity in five essential areas of school design—Leadership, Pedagogy & Curriculum, Assessment for Learning, Learning Environment, and Student & Family Support. Learning events are organized to ensure sustained improvement through leadership development, teacher professional development, coaching and mentoring, and implementation of an effective system for change management. The Alliance team works collaboratively with district and school teams to diagnose organizational needs and prescribe a customized plan that incorporates both targeted PD and coaching.

Our Alliance School Development Rubric (SDR) measures a school’s achievement of 21 Attributes of Exemplary Schools—the activities and processes seen in a well-run school that ensure success for all learners when they are well-implemented and sustained.  This rubric is intended to help schools at all levels assess the strengths and challenges of their instructional practices and organizational conditions. The SDR:

  • Describes the activities and processes seen in a well-run school that ensure success for all learners when they are well-implemented and sustained
  • Helps schools at all levels assess the strengths and challenges of their instructional practices and organizational conditions
  • Serves as the starting point for the implementation planning and change management processes
