Tackle the Top K-12 Problems With LSI’s Partnership Systems:

As your trusted partner, our team of career educators – who have sat in your seats – rely on applied research and sophisticated data tracking to implement a highly customized, long-term growth plan for your school(s).

We go beyond short-term programs, that often are compliance-driven one-size-fits-all interventions that plateau. Instead, LSI focuses on addressing root causes for sustainable growth.

The results allow teachers and school leaders to make informed daily decisions that directly impact the K12 challenges they are facing. 

 

Our Mission

LSI’s social mission is to strengthen core instruction to equip students with the rigor, agency, and equity to break free of generational poverty. Our vision is to help public schools fulfill the promise of becoming the great equalizers for all children.

To reach this promise, we must reimagine classroom learning environments. LSI partners with school districts to relentlessly reform legacy academic and instructional systems that have historically generated inequitable results. Once achieved, all students will thrive, and racial and ethnic achievement gaps will be eliminated entirely.
