School Design

Time and Attention

Match student grouping, learning time, technology, and programs to individual student needs.

What is the opportunity?

In a typical system, there are one-size-fits-all learning environments that meet the needs of some but not all students. This includes standardized and rigid class size, teacher loads, and time.

With Strategic School Design, there are flexible student groupings and schedules that match resources to student needs so all students can access rigorous instruction and meet grade-level expectations.
