InnovateEd believes that high performing school districts have a strategic focus that aligns supports with student learning needs and engages leaders at all levels in collaboration, co-learning and shared accountability.
Clients engage in the Four Disciplines of Systems Leadership to achieve district coherence and build capacity for sustainable improvement:
- Focusing Direction – Setting the stage for long-term growth of district capacity and student achievement by focusing on a few goals and outcomes that align critical supports for leadership, teaching and student learning.
- Cultivating Collaborative Cultures – Implementing structures and processes that develop capacity of principals, school leadership teams and teacher teams to lead district-focused and site-driven continuous improvement of student learning.
- Deepening Learning – Implementing an instructional coherence framework that shifts classroom and school level practices by focusing on developing student skills and using evidence of learning to inform continuous improvement of practices.
- Securing Accountability – Creating a common vision of accountability that engages district leaders, principals and teachers in collaboratively monitoring evidence of student learning to continuously adapt and improve student tasks, instructional supports and classroom practices.
"Building capacity refers to developing the skills, competencies and knowledge that individuals and groups need in order to effectively accomplish the goals at hand."
-Michael Fullan in Coherence (2015)
