Great leadership makes great teaching and learning possible.

SCHOOLWORKS® has trained and supported more than 100 school leaders. Our coaching relationships provide a non-supervisory, confidential thought partnership to encourage critical reflection and support for continued progress on specific goals.

Comprehensive School Improvement Services

SCHOOLWORKS® offers a progressive suite of School Improvement Services designed to build capacity among school leaders and instructional staff. The process begins with an in-depth review of the school’s current state (a School Quality Review), and continues through facilitated improvement planning, needs-aligned interventions, and progress monitoring. To ensure the success of our work, SCHOOLWORKS® Project Teams are comprised exclusively of former educators and administrators who fully understand the constraints and challenges of school environments. These qualified professionals work closely with district administration, principals, teachers, community partners, parents, students, and other providers in a collaborative and coordinated effort to meet education improvement priorities.

Leadership Coaching

SCHOOLWORKS® coaching engagements begin with a collaboratively developed coaching plan outlining specific objectives and timelines. A combination of on-site and virtual supports ensure that milestones are met, while school leaders continually build capacity and skill.
