Engage every reluctant learner with access to high-quality instruction and resources. Then, through the access, close learning gaps to ensure everyone is reaching the school and district goals equitably.
For school improvement or turnaround, don’t go it alone. The amount of necessary coaching at the leadership and classroom levels begs for a side-by-side trusted partner who is NOT evaluating but truly there supporting PLCs and classrooms by showing you how to take each step.
Equity issues manifest at the testing level, root causes are at the system level NOT the student level. All LSI classroom walks from Rigor to Curriculum focus on the school systems and providing rigorous instruction to all students - without directly evaluating the teachers.
LSI is a School Improvement Expert with Research-Based Systems to Upgrade Your Core Instruction and Increase Achievement
During the most disruptive educational environment ever seen in 2020, the United States earned a pandemic-infused collective C grade for its K-12 educational performance. No state earned an A grade and four states received D averages.1
Improving low test scores won’t happen if you stay with the status quo. When your school or district partners with LSI, we work together on palatable solutions for teachers and leaders.
By accelerating Tier 1 learning, students can gain proficiency faster. In turn, the learning gap closes and student achievement trends upward – which can all be monitored with a classroom walk.

“What we’re seeing is that there is a direct correlation between the (virtual) RigorWalk score and what we see in terms of student achievement. That gives us confidence in the tool. It also allows us as a school district to be predictive in terms of what we expect to see with student outcomes and make mid-year corrections.” – Troy Knoderer, Chief Academic Officer, MSD Lawrence Township, Indianapolis, IN

to Improve Low Test Scores
Low test scores are a symptom of Tier 1 lacking high-quality instruction or tools. This results in reluctant learners who are not engaged. When you want more support, LSI is there as your education partner to enhance teacher practice.
Interventions are important, but it’s equally important to maximize a few of those programs, not keep adding more. Instead, accelerate core instruction to strengthen teaching and work toward the complete step of closing the learning gap.
