Partnership

Small Large Lines
Local Insight, National Support

Successful change depends on context, so we situate teacher development as closely to the classroom–and students–as possible. Our teams work with partners to set a strategy that works for their needs, policy conditions, and readiness drawing from Leading Educators’ deep knowledge base.

Individual partners also benefit from new knowledge and innovation generated by our national network of leading system partners who are tackling similar challenges with success. We have a centralized team of researchers and improvement experts who study and apply new learning to our design processes so you can count on staying ahead of the curve.

“They take a lot of ownership. They’re not just partners who show up and do their sessions and that’s that. They’ve been great thought partners over the years. When they work with schools, they take an expansive sense of responsibility. They see their work as a key lever for holistic school improvement, not just in isolation.”
Scott Thompson, DCPS leader
How We Partner

School systems come to us with unique needs and strengths. Drawing from our experiences in more than 20 cities and the leading research, we partner with them to optimize conditions and strategy, build enduring instructional leadership capacity, and promote evidence-based and replicable practices.

Full Model, Single-Partner

District or system partnerships provide both system- and school-level support across all five program areas: Equity, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Learning Systems, or Leadership and Culture. Teaching teams receive robust opportunities to deepen their expertise with grade-level standards and their curriculum over several years.

Outcomes: Include improvements in school and system conditions, teacher practice and knowledge, teacher mindset, and student learning.

Full Model, Multi-Partner

Multi-district or system partnerships provide both system- and school-level support across all five program areas: Equity, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Learning Systems, or Leadership and Culture. They provide a unique opportunity for education systems within the same geographic area to share practices and create strategic alignments. Teaching teams receive robust opportunities to deepen their expertise with grade-level standards and their curriculum over several years.

Outcomes: Include improvements in school and system conditions, teacher practice and knowledge, teacher mindset, and student learning.

Modular

Modular partnerships leverage a subset of programmatic offerings for system leaders, school leaders, or school-based instructional leaders. They typically focus on one specific support area and include development activities for school-based educators. 

Outcomes: Include changes in system and school conditions, teacher practice and knowledge, and student learning (depending on the scope).

Consultative

Consultative partnerships often take a more narrow focus and prioritize shifts at the systemic level that can enable school-based outcomes in the long-run. Typical activities focus on several but not all of the following support areas: Equity, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Learning Systems, or Leadership and Culture.

Outcomes: Vary based on scope.
