Our support for districts & CMOs
ANet provides flexible support to districts depending on their need—diagnostics, systems consulting, assessment audits, PD, or system-wide implementation of our core partnership model.
Unified, not unilateral
From the classroom to the school to the district, educators succeed when everyone works toward the same goals. ANet partners with school districts to coordinate the use of interim assessments and robust data practices across many schools.
ANet's support for system leaders helps them create sustainable cultures that are more than the sum of their parts.
ANet’s technical assistance to districts balances an array of considerations. Each school's need for effective data routines is weighed against its readiness to implement them; the multi-year commitment needed to bring these practices to all schools is weighed against the challenge of tight budgets. The importance of a cohesive district-wide plan is weighed against the critical requirement that each school embrace that plan.
We help districts and CMOs:
- identify their strengths and weaknesses
- develop system-wide structures to support data-driven instruction
- coordinate all the strategies they are pursuing
- develop a system-wide plan to coordinate assessments
- audit data practices to make sure all schools are pulling in the same direction
- navigate the sometimes-competing factors of equity and school readiness
We provide coaching to school leadership teams, helping them implement data-driven management structures, and professional development opportunities that allow school leaders to learn from the best practices of the best schools in our network.
These supports help establish clear and ambitious expectations for every student, educator, and leader in the district.
ANet tailors support to district needs
ANet’s direct service to all schools in a system is flexible and highly responsive. We adjust our support to meet changing needs. ANet can also scale back our support—while leaving our resources in place—as a district grows confident in the efficacy of its teaching and learning cycle.
