Innovative Solutions for Indiana Schools

We offer an array of services, all fully customized to help your schools achieve greater results.  Let’s talk about how Educational Directions can work with you to design a plan to improve student outcomes, close academic gaps, create leadership pipelines, and boost test scores in your schools today.

Ed Directions fully-customizes services to support Indiana educators, and meet your unique challenges. Our programs help schools meet the social/emotional needs of students, and aim to face the challenges by:

We offer an number of programs and services that will improve student outcomes and provide school leaders and administration innovative ways to meet the needs of students.

Providing quality school improvement and professional development services for over 20 years.

We have provided training and ongoing coaching/mentoring support for state departments of education, regional consortia, school districts, and individual schools in several states. We have also provided “pipeline training” and mentoring for staff in support of the grooming process for future academic leaders.

The key to erasing “perception gaps” and “performance gaps” is the development of school and classroom cultures and climates that honor and enable all students.

This requires an ongoing monitoring of data streams above and beyond scores and requires academic leaders and teachers to identify and remediate/eliminate attitudes, practices, and perceptions that are barriers to a “success for all” culture. This approach has enabled Ed Directions to lead the radical change of school culture in schools where the culture was judged to be toxic for any students who were at-risk for any reason

Fostering Safe, Positive, Healthy, Culturally Competent, and Inclusive Learning Environments

In working with various districts and schools, Ed Directions has developed several proprietary systems that support student responsive schools. These systems enable us to:

  • Collect data in order to identify students at-risk, identify the point of break down in the student’s work, establish the cause of the break down, and then develop a “targeted” intervention program.
  • Perform culture audits/reviews that can be used to do pre- and post-intervention evaluations of district or school cultures and climates to assess the impact of a program or intervention.
  • Design and manage observation checklists and data collection tools to observe the implementation of culture improvement plans and note the impact on students in classroom interactions.
  • Create artifact checklists to follow the development and implementation of plans, policies, and programs at the district and school levels, and assess the focus of the artifacts collected as a part of the implementation process.
  • Develop plans for “ad hoc” professional development that can be used to deal with individuals, a small group of teachers, or whole staff that are struggling with engaging “at-risk” students.
