LSI empowers schools and districts to transform core instruction and leadership practices, resulting in rapid gains in student learning.

HOW DOES SCHOOLS FOR RIGOR WORK?

LSI’s Schools for Rigor focuses on developing effective teachers and leaders with aligned support across all levels. Steps include:

LSI facilitates an on-site planning day to explore desired outcomes and set criteria for successful student performance. Together, we discover how to build a culture of continuous improvement that enhances student achievement.

At this critical stage, LSI performs a diagnostic walkthrough and analysis called RigorWalk. We’ll facilitate interviews and surveys with your leadership team and debrief our findings.

We’re passionate about coaching because it works. Leaders at every level—from district to school to classroom—will learn how to drive implementation into practice, and we’ll help your teachers master the most powerful teaching strategies and skills.

No more waiting until the end of the year to gauge improved student learning. LSI uses data cycles throughout the school year to measure progress from the original baseline measures, including four instances of the RigorWalk and 30-day evidences.

In the final step to success, you’ll rest easy knowing that you have access to the complete set of LSI’s expert consultants, resources, and technology tools, all trained and designed to increase rigor to meet the standards, strengthen leadership practices, and provide you with robust data.

This includes experts from all walks of the K-12 spectrum, including district leaders, area superintendents, principals, and teachers, and it means quick and easy access to LSI-published books, presentations, and other assorted materials, as well as the ability to integrate and utilized web-based platforms designed to make implementation easier and monitoring a breeze.

Take a (virtual) stroll through our hall of fame. We’ve worked with districts of all shapes, sizes, and demographics. We can design a comprehensive plan or target focused needs over a shorter period--whatever you need.
