How We Help
At the Great Schools Partnership, we know that teachers are some of the most industrious, creative, dedicated, and caring professionals. They experience inequities firsthand and, as a result, routinely work longer hours, explore new learning resources, and dedicate their lives to improving learning for all students. But systemic inequities require systemic solutions.
We are here to help. Our resources, tools, and coaching strategies have enabled more than 100 schools across the U.S. to implement a proficiency-based system of education, to reimagine their community engagement policies, to teach transferable skills, and so much more. Why do we do it? Because we believe every school can and should achieve an equitable, rigorous, and personalized education system that prepares all students for college, careers, and global citizenship.
We know that school and district improvement aren’t finish lines you cross; both are a continuous process of exploring, learning, and implementing change. We hope the case studies below will demonstrate that, though this work is challenging, it’s also possible; additionally, we hope these case studies will help you visualize what the work actually looks like in action.
As partners in this most important work, we pledge to learn who you are and hear what your specific school community needs. Together, we can improve learning for all your students. Learn how by clicking the button below.
We regularly survey teachers, principals, and central office staff of schools and districts in which we work to maximize our impact with you and continuously improve our coaching model. The aggregate data from our 2020-21 mid-year feedback show:
“I think it is fair to say [our coach] always meets and surpasses our expectations. He is thoughtful, responsive, and masterful in his facilitation and relationships with multiple [district] leaders and in changing contexts. His commitment to and flexibility in the partnership does not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.”
