District Collaborations

Your Vision, Your Ecosystem, Our Partnership

Let’s Collaborate

Transformational, learner-centered change starts with a shared vision that guides goals and practices that positively impact student learning at scale. This requires building a professional learning community striving for continuous improvement, promoting collective responsibility, and supporting alignment of individual, team, school, and district goals.

Designed for:
District and school leaders and guiding coalitions

Format:

  • Virtual or on-site
  • 1-day to multi-year engagements

Let’s make your vision a reality, together.

Leveraging an ecosystem approach, our district collaborations recognize the critical importance of all parts of a learning community working together. In partnership, we’ll identify your district’s strengths and needs and build upon what’s working to advance your learner-centered journey.

Strategic Consulting

District Design

For districts looking to create a learned-centered paradigm and catalyze a shift in practices, our team will support you to create a Framework for the Future including a Learner Profile, Success Indicators, and a Learning Model.

Leadership Academy

Our Leadership Academy helps form a guiding coalition of key leaders, administrators, and site-level educators to define and align on a shared vision for learning, identify clear metrics, solidify a learning model, and ensure continued improvement and progress toward desired goals.

Leadership Coaching

We provide district and site-level leadership, individual, or team coaching that supports creating the enabling conditions for learner-centered practices. These regularly scheduled sessions inform the progress toward partnership goals and include resources, ideation, and advising tailored to your current needs.

Learning Walks

We lead you through a learner-centered, non-evaluative observation process that promotes opening up classrooms, discussing practices, and learning together. You will gain tools for celebrating what is working and identifying next steps and will come away with a post-walk reflection and executive summary from our team.

Needs Assessment

Based on your Framework for the Future, we will conduct a needs assessment including stakeholder interviews, classroom visits, student forums, and a document review. From there we provide a customized report of strengths, opportunities, and recommendations to move you forward.

Pedagogy and Practice

Educator Workshops

Based on our learner-centered framework and leveraging our proprietary resources, we design workshops that deepen educator expertise and practices aligned with your vision. These can also include follow-up check-ins to support implementation of new learning and practices.

Pathways

A year-long pathway allows a team of educators or the whole school to learn new strategies, try out ideas, and engage in learning cycles with a supportive community to deepen expertise and impact. These pathways put an emphasis on one of our four learner-centered principles: Competency-Based, Authentic, Personalized, and Inclusive and Equitable Community. This can be paired with the Altitude Learning platform, a comprehensive set of tools that supports a full learner-centered learning cycle.
