How can a culture of reflection and learning be built into the very fiber of a school?
Multiple measures—including the perspectives of students, educators, and families—help build a well-rounded understanding of how a school is doing and enable a culture of continuous improvement.
A school that’s a true learning organization is a resilient school, better able to meet challenges when they come.
An effective school is a learning organization, engaged in constant inquiry involving educators, students, families, and community partners. Grounded in clear goals for students and aspirations for the school itself, a school team can reflect on evidence from many sources to help understand progress, spot problems, personalize opportunities for students, and improve continuously in ways large and small. A culture of continuous improvement helps a school stay innovative, open to new ideas, and always learning and growing.
