Since 2004, we have worked hand-in-hand with the leaders of over 100 school systems and several states through data (analysis & benchmarking), design (strategy, resource trade-offs & consensus building) and implementation (planning & monitoring). We often start with an analysis of existing strategy and resource allocation in school systems mapped against best practice. We then focus on five resource-intensive areas of school system design as illustrated:
In all our work, we focus on the larger picture—how resources work together to create strategic systems that support strong schools. Our nonprofit status enables a different kind of partnership with districts and states: one where we participate in the transformation struggle, create insights together, and share lessons with others.

“For the last decade ERS has been the gold standard of whom urban districts want to work with to understand how to organize resources for greater impact. What stands out are data analytics, tools and the ability to go really deep.”
We are headquartered in Watertown, MA, just outside Boston.
