System Partnership


This type of partnership works well for school systems.  In this model, we provide a train-the-trainer professional learning program for large numbers of schools.  This is a multilevel, multi-site intervention design for whole systems or districts that need to engage in a rigorous large-scale change initiative. 

In a System Partnership, district personnel, school leaders and school-based facilitators are trained to assess school needs, and negotiate goals and consensus.  They also learn how to promote a culture of inquiry in the system’s schools.  Special courses help lead teachers develop in-depth literacy teaching knowledge, and promote skills in observation and instructional coaching.

Key district personnel participate in a series of workshops and short courses held at central locations where they learn to support leaders and teachers to success.

A System Partnership has an ongoing focus on building well-functioning professional learning communities, and promoting effective professional learning conversations.
