June 1, 2018 - Join Us in Columbus on June 27th: Purposeful Planning Workshop

The School Performance Institute is offering an innovative Purposeful Planning workshop based on the curriculum development best practices used by the high-poverty, high-performing schools at the United Schools Network.  Nearly 100% of our students are economically disadvantaged, but our achievement results rival those in more affluent areas (see our results in dark blue below).  A coherent system for curriculum development is one of the essential ingredients to our results.
