Theory of Action

The underlying weakness of traditional structures and premises about students, staff, learning and the purpose of schooling requires more than minor tweaks to long-standing reform concepts. Action Learning Systems has a 20 year record of success in moving its partner districts from traditional time-based student achievement to a standards-driven system that transforms the school improvement agenda. Action Learning Systems provides innovative and cost-effective professional development that blends whole system strategic blueprints with online curriculum, progress monitoring tools and in-classroom and on-site coaching programs for teachers and administrators. Our versatile team of experienced professionals will work with you to:

  • Develop a sound district level strategic blueprint that will reduce the impact of operational silos (Instruction, Business, HR, etc.) known to hinder school improvement
  • Provide comprehensive instructional improvement models and coaching including formal presentations, demonstrations, co-planning/co-teaching, and in-classroom coaching focused on research-based instructional strategies known to directly impact student achievement
