The Systems Thinking School Improvement Initiative is a comprehensive school improvement undertaking aimed at achieving significant, sustainable, systemic and measurable improvement in student achievement and well-being.
The Systems Thinking School Improvement Initiative has been developed for school districts and is designed to be extremely flexible and can be customized to the unique needs of each district.
When a school district engages in the STSII, they begin with a paradigm shift and commit to learning the new philosophy, developing the new leadership skills and applying them in an ongoing manner over a sustained period of time (usually one year).
The promise of the STSII, is that when these practices are applied with FIDELITY – significant, measurable improvements in student learning will occur. School Improvement – the depth and rate will be “ramped up”.
