A one-size-fits-all learning environment with rigid schedules and class sizes that don’t accommodate different learning needs.
Schools with restructured teams and schedules; personalized learning and support that responds to student needs and promotes instructional collaboration.
Through over a decade of research and practice in the area of strategic resource use, ERS has found that high-performing schools begin with a clear vision of student success and instructional quality, and then deliberately organize resources—people, time, technology, and money—to implement a coherent set of research-backed strategies to reach this vision. We call this Strategic School Design. To learn more about what this means in practice, download Designing Schools that Work and explore our tools in the Get Started section on School Design.
