School Design

STARTING FROM


A one-size-fits-all learning environment with rigid schedules and class sizes that don’t accommodate different learning needs.

MOVING TO:


School roles, teams, and schedules are structured to enable personalized time and attention, teacher collaboration, and professional learning.

What is the opportunity?

Through over a decade of research and practice in the area of strategic resource use, ERS has found that high-performing schools begin with a clear vision of student success and instructional quality, and then they deliberately organize resources (people, time, technology, and money) to implement a coherent set of research-backed strategies to reach this vision. We call this strategic school design. School systems play a crucial role in setting the conditions for and supporting schools in strategic school design.
