We are fortunate to have successful partnerships with state education agencies, district, and school leaders, and it is our objective to help them achieve their goals of student achievement and improvement. This edition of The Source features examples of how Cognia collaborates with partners such as the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, to build the state’s capacity and standardize a continuous improvement process for schools and provide leadership counsel for district superintendents and principals. Together state accountability and regional accreditation efforts can be aligned to improve school performance.
Research indicates that accreditation and school inspection practices aligned with continuous improvement frameworks are most likely to lead to school improvement and be perceived as valuable by institutions. Whether preparing for accreditation reviews, conducting root cause analyses of underperformance in Diagnostic Reviews, or planning and implementing school turnaround, our improvement experts partner with you to collect, analyze, and identify actionable data for improvement. In working alongside educators, we serve as coaches and guides to problem solve unique leadership challenges for superintendents and principals and help institutions scale professional learning with a purpose. These partnerships also help us improve how we offer support and deliver on our promise to you—iron sharpens iron.
State School Superintendent, Kirsten Baesler has said “Progress travels at the speed of trust, and trust begins with relationships.” We value our relationships with our partner SEAs, districts, and schools and enjoy hearing about and sharing your successes within our network and beyond.
