Quality Schools Program
The Quality Schools Program is an initiative of the Center for Student Achievement. The mission of the Center is firmly rooted in the principle that all students deserve a quality education, no matter where they attend school. The Quality Schools Program is a three year series of job-embedded professional development and intensive on-site coaching for teachers and school leaders looking to improve student achievement. Through data-driven instruction and Professional Learning Communities, schools will create, implement, and sustain a systematic approach to Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, and Professional Development. After three years, schools will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to positively affect student learning and increase student achievement.
