Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission is to build the capacity of educators to advance all aspects of student achievement and well-being.

Our vision is an educational system that interprets best practices to meet the unique needs of every community, neighborhood and school. To accomplish this vision, we work from a set of core values:

Accountability
We believe accountability for results is an essential component of every successful organization.

Based on Evidence
We seek to understand the context and practices of schools, districts, school networks, authorizers, and communities through evidence-based processes.

Collaboration and Learning
We serve our clients best by collaborating and learning with them.

Diversity
We practice cultural competence in the diverse communities and schools in which we work, and are strengthened by differing backgrounds, beliefs, experiences and approaches.

Effective Practices
We identify effective practices across the education landscape, interpret and apply them in all aspects of our work.
