The LAUNCH!™ Learning and Performance Experience

Our LAUNCH! Learning and Performance Expereince meets ESSA requirements for evidence-based school improvement interventions with a strong emphasis on leadership. Locally implemented, our evidence-based program is intensive, year-long, job-embedded and aligned to the validated Certified School Improvement Specialist standards.  Our  performance-based approaches develop school and district leaders, academic coaches and other state and local school improvement facilitators to facilitate sustainable, systemic school improvement. Participants participate in learning communities with peer and coach support.

LAUNCH! engages participants, using their schools’ performance data and focusing on their unique challenges guiding school turnaround and transformation. This intensive ten-part Experience is based on the national Certified School Improvement Specialist™ standards. Cohorts are offered for  school districts, regional groups and state education agencies.

Participants’ supervisors attend alongside their participants. The Institute develops these individuals to support, supervise and assess participants’ transfer of learning to on-the-job practice and results. Supervisor participation under education agency Memorandums of Agreement ensure participants’ learning and on-the-job practice is “expected and inspected”. Successful program completion earns a micro-credential, a verifiable digital badge, proving proficiency.
