Academic Support Services
Educational Directions (Ed Directions) provides a variety of academic reviews for schools, groups of schools, and districts. The reviews are conducted by a team of educators who have been trained to collect, organize, and summarize different types of data that describe current conditions and current practice in schools. All of the review processes include a preparation phase, a site visit, and an interpretation and report writing by the Ed Directions senior team.
It is important to note that Ed Directions does not market a curriculum or a specific “canned” strategy. Ed Directions first looks at the current status of teacher and student work to determine if it represents best practice for the spring (Calibrating Period). If it does not, then Ed Directions will facilitate discussions about how student work needs to change create proficient learners and performer.Contact us today to find out how we can partner to advance your school or entire district through academic reviews.
All our training, intellectual property, and our approach to school improvement works with the system and the resources the district has selected. Our role is to help each school best implement the programs to make sure every student is becoming a confident, self-initiated learner and is able to work at the pace and the rigor of how they will be assessed (especially in terms of testing). By working inside the educational ecosystem of the district, it should be a seamless process for us to ensure sustainable processes and results after our partnership time is complete.
