Developing today’s students

Project Management

When you partner with Learning Sciences, you get the expertise and service of an experienced, responsive project management team.

The moment a partnership is finalized, our project management team begins full implementation of all aspects of the engagement. We ensure responsiveness and support by assigning a project manager as a single point of contact for partners. Our project coordinators handle the logistics, scheduling, and other administrative supports. It’s all part of our commitment to building relationships with partners for improving teacher practice and student achievement now and into the future.
