District + School Design
We have a long history of rethinking education systems and advocating for in-district schools that have maximum autonomy over their resources, including our pioneering work with the Boston Public Schools (BPS) and Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) on the Pilot school model, and with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Education on the Innovation Schools model. We partner with educators and leaders nationwide to create a new generation of districts and schools: largely autonomous, high-functioning community assets dedicated to the values of equity, rigor, and continuous improvement.
Building effective leadership to support learning.
A strong structure of leadership shared among district leaders, principals, school and teacher leaders, and community leaders who are committed to school improvement ensures that decisions are made by those as close to students as possible.
Embedding equity and data in all conversations and practices.
As educators work together with CCE consultants to engage in discourse, gather and reflect on data, and continuously improve, their solutions become increasingly more relevant and respectful of individual and cultural differences, corresponding to how students best learn.
Promoting strong, collaborative cultures with a shared vision of student success.
Teachers who cultivate a sense of community around mutual values for students will grow in the profession and elevate one another. An outgrowth of a strong professional culture is a reflective and inclusive community for staff, students, and families.
