Exit School Improvement with Us

We have a proven track record  of moving targeted schools off state accountability lists.

In the 2022-2023 school year alone, more than 20 school districts have had success using our hands-on professional support and monitoring tools, and have schools off the accountability list. And of our campuses that were rated as F or D within two years, they are now rated as A or B.

I spoke today with an Assistant Superintendent from a neighboring district. I sing your praises and shared what a positive impact the process had on our district.

- Superintendent

One of our buildings was removed from the Focus List and labeled a school in good standing. I can say without reservation that [your team] played a big role in this achievement. I would highly recommend any district looking to improve instruction for its students.

- Superintendent

The fastest gap-closing schools in the state can be attributed largely to [their] systems transformations.
