Every school. Every child. Ready for tomorrow.
Some schools beat the odds by “doing school” in new ways. But for every school and every child to thrive, we need to change the odds with strategic systems. Restructuring resources makes this transformation possible.
ERS partners with district, school, and state leaders to transform how they use resources (people, time, and money) to create strategic school systems that enable every school to prepare every child for tomorrow, no matter their race or income.
For example, ERS helps districts restructure resources and create the conditions that enable schools to shift from a one-size-fits-all learning environment with rigid schedules and class sizes to one where roles, teams and schedules are structured to enable personalized time and attention, teacher collaboration and professional learning. Or, instead of a teaching job that is isolated with limited opportunities for growth or teaming, and career and compensation paths unconnected to performance or contribution, ERS helps district and school leaders create systems to hire and assign great teachers to all schools and develop them throughout their careers.
