School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new report showing the school turnaround in a rural Kansas school district that transformed it from the state’s lowest testing district to one of the top three districts with the Educator Effectiveness System. With this holistic system, district leaders increased student achievement in math and reading, educator leadership skills, and educator enthusiasm.
“We applaud Southeast USD 247 for their dedication and progress towards increasing educator effectiveness and helping every student graduate college and career ready,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “The Educator Effectives System has driven hundreds of school turnarounds by giving schools and systems the resources to support educators in every aspect of their professional growth and personalize resources to their specific needs, helping them become as effective as possible to increase student mastery and college and career readiness.”
Using the Educator Effectiveness System, Kansas’ Southeast USD 247 saw school turnarounds as the district went from having the lowest test scores in the state to rising to become one of the state’s top three districts in math, reading and science. The Educator Effectiveness System has also increased leadership skills among educators and teacher enthusiasm.
The Educator Effectiveness System is an end-to-end professional learning solution with thousands of tools and resources that fills professional development needs, provides complete support for Common Core implementation challenges, delivers powerful observation and evaluation tools, and more.
