School Turnaround and Improvement
Alliance™ is a comprehensive school turnaround program in which EdisonLearning partners with underperforming schools to make sustained and ongoing improvement on achievement. The Alliance program is a change management program that sends a team of education professionals directly to the partnering school to work closely with educators and administrators to develop site capacity. The program operates with a whole school approach, combining leadership development, curriculum improvements and a proven assessment system to target all components of the learning process.
Alliance Follows These Steps:
Diagnose: Needs Assessment: 360 Degree Diagnostic that identifies strengths and areas for improvement
Plan: Develop customized Achievement Plans from principal to classroom with clearly articulated goals linked to 5 Strands and Milestones
Do: Relentless implementation of agreed activities and programs
Monitor: Measure progress using a variety of data including eValuate, with regular tracking through dashboards
Report: Regular reporting of progress to key stakeholders
Alliance begins with an end in mind. From the outset, key outcomes are defined that represent the goals, qualities and improvements that a school can achieve by the end of the partnership. These support and enhance the school’s needs assessment and development planning process.
The Five Strands
The Alliance program is founded on the Five Strands model. We focus our work on five, interrelated strands that represent the essential support systems that are effectively managed at today’s outstanding schools. Our whole school approach is founded on these core values that encourage a positive culture and guide good decision making: Leadership, Learning Environment, Assessment for Learning, Pedagogy and Curriculum, Student & Family Support.
