Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Education company School Improvement Network has spent over two decades researching and documenting how the highest performing schools in the United States help their students reach college and career readiness. Using this research, the company has developed a step-by-step system to create effective teachers, along with a set of tools that educators can use to complete those steps. The system, and the tools that drive it, is called the Teacher Effectiveness System (TES).
“TES is the result of years of observation and development, and one thing is certain—the system works,” says Chet Linton, CEO of School Improvement Network. “My colleagues and I have watched leaders find incredible success using many of the strategies and the tools laid out in TES—everything from increased teacher engagement, to complete school turnarounds and 100% student college and career readiness.”
A number of independent studies conducted by outcomes researcher Dr. Steven Shaha confirm Linton’s assertion. Dr. Shaha’s research shows that schools using PD 360, the professional development tool in the Teacher Effectiveness System, experience significant improvements in standardized test performance, with scores rising as much as 30% in a single year, and dramatic performance advantages, with 200 – 1,500% the gains in proficiency rates versus district averages.

The steps and tools in the Teacher Effectiveness System have been repeatedly proven in schools throughout the United States—showing teachers how to make every student college and career ready. TES supports teachers as they make 100% happen.
