Targeted School Transformation
Identify specific areas of focus for school improvement. In collaboration with our Alliance team, you’ll improve your school in key areas. We offer two targeted transformation frameworks:
Engage the entire school community in adopting a set of best practices to elevate the quality of teaching and learning through a consistent and cohesive instructional model. Support educators as they leverage best practices in planning, instruction, and assessment across all grade levels and content areas. Building Instructional Coherence also builds administrators’ capacity to serve as effective instructional leaders, creates opportunities for teachers to collaborate and share resources, and provides a consistent set of routines and structures for students as they transition between classrooms and academic years.
Our Building Instructional Coherence: A Blueprint for Success shares our research-based instructional model designed to maximize Academic Learning Time, cultivate greater student engagement, and improve student learning outcomes.
Focus on creating a language-rich environment and developing literacy in all subject areas.
