Helping Every School Succeed for Every Student
We believe we can transform school systems so every school succeeds because of the system—not in spite of it.

The Vision

Inconsistent standards that don’t prepare kids to think critically, creatively, or collaboratively.
Rigorous, college-and-career-ready standards with effective curricula, instructional strategies, and assessments to achieve them.
Isolated job, limited opportunities for growth or teaming, and career and compensation paths unconnected to performance or contribution.
Selective hiring, development, and strategic assignment to schools and teams. Career path and compensation enable growth and reward contribution.
School Design
A one-size-fits-all learning environment with rigid schedules and class sizes that don’t accommodate different learning needs.
Schools with restructured teams and schedules; personalized learning and support that responds to student needs and promotes instructional collaboration.
Limited autonomy, flexibility and support that do little to develop and promote strong leadership.
Leadership roles with clear goals, accountability and career paths, and the flexibility and support to achieve results.
School Support
Central office focused on compliance and oversight rather than productive partnerships with schools.
A central office that serves as a strategy partner, leveraging data to increase efficiency and identify best practices.
Wide funding variances across schools, even after adjusting for differences in student needs.
Systems that allocate resources—people, time, and money—equitably, according to student and school needs.
Schools struggling to provide the full range of social, emotional, health, and other services.
Partnering with families, community institutions, youth service organizations, and online instructors to serve students’ needs.
