Prevent Closure and Build A Sustainable Future For Your School and Your Students
There are many reasons why schools struggle with low-performance and meeting outside standards. But there’s one way to turn it around: by working together. Partnering with your professionals and your community, we can work with you to:
We believe in public schools. We believe in your mission. We want to give you the tools to do what you love for the communities you serve.
The school had wavered between “D” and “F” school grades for nine years. In the 2016-2017 school year, Moseley was the fifth-lowest performing traditional public school in Florida.1 The following year, Putnam County School District hired Learning Sciences International (LSI) because the district believed that this investment would provide the right supports to lift Moseley out of turnaround and achieve its true potential.
After two years of intensive work, Moseley transcended from an “F” school to a “C”, and even more so a school where other parents are eager to enroll their children. It was the first time the school had earned a “C” in nine years.
“One of the things that drew us to LSI was that it was not program-based. Over time, we could substitute or replace curriculum materials or different programs, but the practices would remain because LSI helps to change educators’ way of work, their classroom practices, and their expectations for students.”

We help you exit external management status within the required timelines. Our field-tested methods help the cycle of low-performance and transform schools through the highest equity and access in core instruction.
Our team of external managers, led by former turnaround principals, helps the school create a culture of mutual accountability between students and teachers, an effective, enjoyable, and active learning environment.
Students, teachers, and school leaders thrive. Absenteeism goes down. Teacher retention goes up. Teachers have more impact, feel more fulfilled, productive, and less stressed. Everyone holds a renewed sense of pride.
When LSI joined us, it made our work much easier and much more attainable. The beauty of LSI is it wasn’t just something extra to add-in.
The biggest thing I got from LSI was confidence as a teacher because I know my kids are learning. I know I’m doing everything I can to give them exactly what they need to be successful.
Raised school grades in one year and improve core instruction and avoided state-imposed requirements for school closure, charter conversion, or management by an external operator
Selecting an external manager you can trust to lift your struggling schools out of external management and other state mandates is a difficult decision. Here’s how our process helps to make this an easier decision:
We provide clear, outcome-based reports and communication that can be used to share with all stakeholders
We report our metrics every 30 days to ensure we are making progress and that we meet or exceed our plan for improvement, holding ourselves accountable to you.
Throughout the project, we conduct school board updates and community meetings to address issues and concerns before they arise and build a sense of trust.
We hold ourselves accountable to make sure you can break the cycle of low performance once and for all and launch your schools on a sustainable path to becoming models of rigorous instruction and student engagement.
Schedule a free call with our practice leader where we listen to your challenges, what you want to achieve for your school/district, and discuss our research-based methodology that produces proven results.
We’ll assess your school’s situation and customize a plan and proposal based on your needs and goals that include a systems assessment, transformation operator team composition, professional development, coaching, and other resources to exit external management status quickly and effectively.
We execute that plan together, providing expert team members to lead the transformation, so students excel, are equipped with 21st-century skills, and your teachers are more fulfilled. And, we complete the project within the timelines required by legislation.
PEEK INSIDE: “It’s vital to have a comprehensive plan that also addresses areas such as budget, facilities, supplies, maintenance, food service, transportation, IT infrastructure and resources, and more.”
