School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new case study showing how a rural South Carolina district raised math scores 15% and language arts scores 10% with the Educator Effectiveness System.

“A school turnaround does not have to take years,” said Chet Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “With the right tools and resources and proper implementation, schools can see dramatic increases in educator effectiveness and student achievement in a single year. The Educator Effectiveness System has a long track record of research proving again and again that educators who use it as a comprehensive solution for professional learning, observations, evaluations and Common Core implementation see an increase in educator effectiveness, and consequently, real gains in student achievement.”

The Educator Effectiveness System is a comprehensive solution that drives professional learning. It combines personalized professional learning, teacher observations and evaluations, and support and resources for Common Core implementation—helping all educators grow, and increase student achievement.

The newly released case study details how Clarendon School District One in Columbia, South Carolina, used the Educator Effectiveness System to give holistic support for every educator, increasing educator effectiveness. As a result, the rural district saw real gains in student achievement in both math and language arts.
