State Collaborations

Your Innovation, Your Leadership, Our Guidance

State departments have a strong influence on learning ecosystems. We partner at the state level to create the enabling conditions for learner-centered education. Our approach emphasizes co-design and co-creation of whole-child outcomes, learning experiences, and strategic alignment. All our work is grounded in decades of first-hand field experience and insights from deep school and district partnerships that span the country.

As experts in learner-centered education, we are prepared to help districts and states respond with evidence-based strategies.

Strategic Consulting

Policy to Practice

Guided by your goals and plans, we help ensure change all the way down to the classroom level where the needs are urgent and necessary for individual learners. At the same time, these changes impact the broader learning ecosystem in ways that accelerate the shift to learner-centered education.

Communities of Practice

To build collective capacity and to inform ongoing adjustments, we lead and facilitate communities of practice from a cross section of schools and districts. These networks surface problems of practice and identify emergent solutions to promote rapid improvement.

Policy and Initiative Connections

Leveraging a learner-centered approach that puts key stakeholders at the heart of the work, we support you to develop, gather feedback on, and roll out policies and initiatives ranging from Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) and online school guidance, to an assessment and accountability system, credentialing, and transcripting.

Pedagogy and Practice

Professional Learning

Our team of educators design and facilitate professional learning experiences aligned to state goals to support and build the capacity of educators, including teachers, coaches, and principals. They develop the immediate, concrete skills to enhance learning, transform assessment practices, and harness the power of learner agency to accelerate progress.

Open Educational Resources

With many districts moving from traditional textbooks to a robust digital ecosystem with devices, connectivity, and learning platforms, they are poised to tap into the wealth of rich, digital, open curriculum resources available. Our team of educators can curate a robust open educational resource (OER) library aligned to your competencies and standards, and make it available for your entire community to search, sort, and leverage in their context.

Resource Development

To facilitate the sharing of best practices, resources, and thought leadership throughout a state, we partner to develop and share publications to support your learning community. This may include case studies, examples of learning solutions and models in practice, and targeted blog posts to inform and guide constituents.
