Review for Partners In School Innovation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Partners in School Innovation works to promote student achievement in low-performing Bay Area schools through intensive work with teachers, principals, and districts. As someone who works in a school system, I am familiar with the negative consequences of implementing systems that aren't supported at all levels. Partners in School Innovation's model addresses this by working to build capacity at both the classroom level and with the school and district leaders. It is intense work, and the Partners staff comes to it with extreme dedication, years of educational experience, and a strong focus on using data to drive continuous improvement.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

San Jose Unified, where every school they worked with made gains in student achievement last year.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with the extremely talented and dedicated staff.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

support Bay Area schools in eliminating the achievement gap and disseminate that knowledge nationwide.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Board Member & I visited school sites to observe Partners in School Innovation Staff working with teachers to support effective collaboration. I worked with staff on analyzing data to measure the effectiveness of Partners in School Innovation strategies.
