Culture, Community, and Program Design

Valuing staff.  Is your school district a place where educators want to come and stay to perfect their craft, advance their careers and make a good living for their families?

What can be done as a School community to cultivate a sense of committed belonging among everyone who is already working for your district and among those who will come to work for your school in the future?

We propose our proprietary Culture and Community growth model that builds Community within Community and helps enlarge capacity within each staff member, focusing on personal and professional goals.

People do not leave jobs where they feel valued, grown, and surrounded by like-minded colleagues. We have a unique structured model where time is dedicated monthly and built into the day to help staff design and create personal and professional goals for their continued successful futures.

Equity stance.  Does your data demonstrate that you have historically underserved populations in your community? How can you as a School community resolve to make up for those differences, knowing that educators must continue improving the learning for all students?

Questions to ponder –
Is your curriculum aligned with equity in mind? We can help lead an equity audit to make sure all populations have equitable access.

Is there intentional professional development with responsive teaching in mind? We can help customize programs/Professional Development as well as monitor authentic engagement and rigor among culturally and linguistically diverse students.

We can provide internal confidential equity audits to make sure all populations have access to academics and resources within the district and can make suggestions for the continued growth and development of the programs that are in alignment with your school’s Mission and Vision.
