                                                              Partnered with KSDE to rethink the state’s approach to raising achievement and closing gaps in student learning, ultimately developing a Kansas Learning Network for the state’s lowest-performing schools and districts. For four years, worked with identified districts to review systems and practices, provide coaching and support, and convene leaders for shared learning. Evaluations of the Learning Network found that the model was highly valued by administrators and made a significant impact on student achievement in participating schools and districts.
