Partners in School Innovation (Partners) is dedicated to transforming teaching and learning in the lowest-performing public schools so that every student, regardless of background, thrives. Our work is to improve school outcomes for students of color living in poverty, and our unique approach to changing lives rests upon a foundation of teamwork. We collaborate with teachers and leaders in vulnerable public schools to help build their capacity to support breakthrough student achievement.
The key to our success is a comprehensive approach to school transformation that strengthens teaching, leading and achievement across a district system. We work shoulder to shoulder with teachers and leaders at schools and in central offices to: i) build a strong core instructional program that ensures all students learn at high levels; ii) create and establish systems for professional learning so that all teachers are able to deliver excellent instruction; and, iii) strengthen results-oriented leadership so that leaders can carry out the daily actions necessary to lead whole school improvement efforts successfully.
Every member of our team is a results-oriented leader, change agent and champion for public education. We value continuous learning and improvement, diversity of backgrounds and ideas, systems thinking and innovation. In addition to a relentless pursuit of our mission, we work hard to ensure we keep growing as humble, knowledgeable, and culturally responsive social justice warriors, deeply committed to helping public schools achieve educational equity.
