What We Do
Join the A-GAME
We work with schools, boards, and authorizers.
We start by examining your context, priorities, and current situation--we recognize that each one of us is different. Based on your priorities, we design a process that results in unique responsive goals, just right for your school(s) and situation. Through 15-20 virtual meetings, we are able to learn how you currently assess quality, discover what you value most, and help you identify more nuanced and responsive ways to Assess: Global access, Academics, Mission, and Equity, including social emotional development.
You will work with content experts from start to finish. We will provide you with completed goals with research-based targets and clearly defined business rules. By joining the A-GAME, you will be ready to launch and implement responsive and effective goals that truly capture school improvements and quality.
A-GAME Goals is not a one-size-fits-all framework but a process for creating goals that measure what matters. Working with schools, boards, and authorizers, often together, the A-GAME Goals creation process ensures that schools are held to high standards based on what families value most.
The goals are reliable and valid. The authorizer or school board no longer seeks externally valid assessments but becomes the external validator of the school’s educational program.
Beyond Career and College Readiness, A-GAME goals ensure students have taken measurable steps into the real world.
Beyond growth and achievement on state assessments, A-GAME Goals include high school credit earning rates, GPA, internal benchmarks, portfolios, lexile growth, and more.
A-GAME Goals measure the extent to which students embody the school's mission.
A-Game Goals start with the student and measure their growth and achievements. They include measures of school climate, student engagement, and social emotional development.
We work with Authorizers, Schools, Boards, and State Education Agencies.
A critical part of our work as authorizers is to build trusting relationships with charter school leaders. We are leaning into our relationships with schools more than ever before to better support staff, students, and families. By staying student focused, we are able to prioritize what is most important to our work.
