Name of Schools/ Districts that this organization has served in other states:

SAP has facilitated school improvement plans for hundreds of urban and suburban schools in the United States and has provided extensive professional development for building administrators, classroom teachers, and central office leadership on a wide range of topics. Many districts and state education agencies have trusted us to help raise student achievement and implement sustainable improvement initiatives. For additional information, please contact Mark Turner or Beth Crain.

Qualifications of this Organization (licensure, trademark, etc.):

Scholastic Achievement Partners (SAP) bring together Scholastic Education, the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE), and Math Solutions to offer a powerful team capable of working across a broad range of needs to impact student achievement and improve low-performing schools. The result is school turnaround and transformation that is research-based, proven effective, and designed for scale and sustainability.
Our team of partners has deep experience in helping to positively impact student achievement. For over 90 years, Scholastic’s mission has been to make every student a better reader, learner, and citizen. For the last 10 years, Scholastic Education has partnered with 1,500+ districts of all sizes and 18,000+ classrooms to enable scalable, sustainable literacy improvement for struggling low income, minority, special education, limited English proficient, and low achieving students. ICLE, founded by leading school improvement expert Bill Daggett, has 20 years of experience in helping to improve schools, strengthen instructional culture, and bolster teaching practices. Math Solutions, founded by renowned math educator Marilyn Burns, has been improving mathematics teacher effectiveness since 1984

Qualifications of Instructors/ Staff that Provide Services:

SAP has a skilled implementation team of accomplished educators that works daily in hundreds of districts around the country, to project manage, to train, to coach, and to provide technical support. All members of the SAP staff are highly educated and trained to deliver school improvement services- in short, this is a team that knows how to form deep partnerships and to “move the needle” when it comes to raising student achievement. All instructional coaches are carefully selected based on deep instructional experience and skill sets relevant to the demands of the scope of work required. SAP draws upon a talent pool of over 30 such advisors and facilitators, matching the most highly qualified and experienced human resources with the expressed needs of the education organizations being served.

Cost:

Costs associated with Scholastic Achievement Partners Services vary depending upon the specific district or school scope of work. Daily rates range from $2,800-3,800. For specific cost information, please contact Mark Turner or Beth Crain.

Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

SAP works with district leaders across the country to produce quantifiable gains in student achievement. At the heart of our partnership model is a reliance on data. We begin by looking at a district’s data to understand what groups of students require what type of instructional or intervention treatment. We use that data to collaboratively plan with district leadership. Once the plan has been implemented, we partner with district leadership to review student achievement data as well as key fidelity of implementation metrics to determine how to optimize on an ongoing basis.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

SAP will partner with the school or district to transform data into helpful, actionable information—allowing educators to track progress against academic improvement goals and meet accountability demands over the course of the school year. We recommend using a number of different monitoring tools to measure program progress:

- Ongoing, daily, weekly, and monthly monitoring of instructional reports
- An analysis of assessment scores at least twice per year at the mid- and end-of-year
- A formal quarterly review of implementation effectiveness to highlight implementation successes and challenges and measure implementation success against key indicators
- Data reports at least twice per year (mid-year and summative end-of-year) to help quantify students achievement gains and identify opportunities for improvement
