Leadership Development & Sustainability Services

We build school and district leadership capacity to ensure that our work is sustainable year after year.

We work with school leaders to ensure they understand best practices as they walk through a teacher’s classroom. This allows them to plan action steps for providing their teachers with meaningful feedback and professional learning that will lead to enhanced teaching practices and increased student achievement.

We work with district leaders to develop comprehensive plans that adapt and scale CLI’s validated approach to meet the specific needs of their district.
