Our Mission and Values

Improving education for every learner

Mission

Our mission is to develop and foster educational excellence and opportunity for all learners through collaboration and leadership.

Core Statement

We are a community of innovative and effective professionals dedicated to improving education. We know that everyone is a learner, and we know how to create classrooms and other environments in which every learner can flourish. We know how to reach, inspire, support, and educate children, youth and adults, and we help others to do the same. 

Our values

The common thread through all our work is that obstacles to learning can be overcome, and once that happens, learning is natural for everyone.

We work to support the efforts of schools and school districts with high quality, research-based, and collaborative solutions to ensure that every child has the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential.

We believe that the emotional and social development needs of children and youth must be addressed if they are to succeed in school, and consequently, in life.

We work to address gaps in programs and services and to build and enhance capacity and access for vulnerable students who are not fully successful in traditional settings because of their unique and individualized needs.

Our work begins with agreements: shared goals and mutual accountability.

We value:

  • Quality and excellence
  • Innovation, creativity and vision
  • Inclusiveness, equity and diversity
  • Collaboration with others
