Schools for Rigor and Equity®

A TEA vetted and approved program aligned with foundational essential actions within the Effective Schools Framework

TEA Vetted and Approved

Our Schools for Rigor and Equity® model is proven to increase student engagement and performance.

No matter the size, socio-economic status, or current proficiency, all schools can elevate instructional systems that drive student learning.

Expert Coaching & Support

Our highly experienced experts work with your team shoulder-to-shoulder to implement evidence-based educational interventions based on individual school and district needs.

Student-Centered Learning

Through our exclusive academic teaming model, teachers empower students to take ownership of their/their peers' learning through a student accountability system and structures for peer support.

Shared Accountability

We hold ourselves equally accountable. We do this by measuring at every step to make certain your school is hitting its goals. If not, we adjust and improve along the way to ensure you succeed!

Teaching becomes more joyful and effective when you move away from teacher-centered direct instruction and toward student-led Academic Teams. Engagement and achievement both accelerate, while behavior issues decrease when students own their learning.

Continuum of School Improvement ›

Our Continuum of School Improvement through evidence-based interventions offers schools an opportunity to match services with their needs. We meet you where you are, capitalize on your unique strengths, and help you build systems that will sustain your improvements as you move to the next level.
