“From the moment we engaged with Action Learning Systems, we knew we were embarking on a new journey! The work is messy. The work is hard. The work is well worth it. ALS is masterful at stretching others to think differently and always in the best interest of students. As urban leaders in a very large high school district, we were stretched to think carefully about how our work is focused and aligned at every single level. What we have done to plan for increased achievement and high levels of learning in every classroom, every day, has been championed and supported by the ALS team every step of the way!”
