School Collaborations

Your Outcomes, Your Team, Our Coaching

Let’s Collaborate

Learner-centered education is most effective when a collective learning community progresses toward common goals. We facilitate this by helping schools develop and articulate learner-centered outcomes, support educators in developing effective instructional practices, and create the enabling conditions that result in transformative change.

Designed for:
Educator and leadership teams


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

Let’s make an impact, together.

Whether you are a new school or an established school, whether you are ready for a small step or a giant leap, our offerings scale to support your desired outcomes. Our work together is customized to meet your needs and will always aim to build your team’s internal capacity and expertise in order to grow learner-centered practices in your context.

Strategic Consulting

School Design

For new schools or schools looking to create a learner-centered paradigm, our team will guide the creation of a Framework for the Future including a Learner Profile, Success Indicators, and a Learning Model.

Since 2019 we’ve been partnering with Peninsula School District in Washington state to launch two new schools based on their learner-centered vision and to scale the practices across the entire district. Learn about Swift Water Elementary and the district’s new STEAM magnet school, Pioneer Elementary School.

Leadership Coaching

We provide site-level leadership, individual, and 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.

“Learner-Centered Collaborative has been an incredible partner to us at Menlo Park City School District. The leadership coaching support that Katie Martin has provided for our site principals and Education Services team has been intentional, innovative, and inspiring. We have been able to move our district in the same direction from knowledge to action on our Whole-Child Learning and Development Framework. Learner-Centered Collaborative’s leadership coaching has been invaluable!”

– Jammie Behrendt, Assistant Superintendent, Menlo Park City School District

Learning Walks

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.

Diagnostic 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.

Educator 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.

See how two Hawaii Charter Schools are leveraging Pathways support and the Altitude Learning platform to scale and sustain competency-based learning. Read the story
