Collaborate for More Meaningful Goals
For Authorizers: Wonder what others are doing with their school frameworks? Work with a group of authorizers to set your goals! Talk through your individual circumstances, bounce ideas off of each other, and end up with effective measures based on your community's needs.
Structured collaboration with others to propel your process
Develop and refine your renewal goals or annual frameworks to fit your unique school needs
Each session, our experts will lead you in rich conversations, a wide-range of examples, and experience-based feedback
Do you have a vision for a new accountability system or more meaningful goals and measures? Do you wish you could collaborate with others to ensure you get it right? If so, this cohort is for you. Matched with two other authorizers who have similar interests and timelines, you will follow a structured process, designed to refine your thinking and turn your vision into action.
- A flexible project plan backward mapped using your timeline, deadlines, and needs.
- Multiple facilitated sessions in a safe, collaborative environment optimal for exchanging ideas and seeking advice.
- Sample measures that go beyond state assessments and measure what matters to students, educators and families (e.g., social-emotional development, workforce readiness, student engagement, and differentiated academic growth).
- Accountability partners who encourage you to follow your vision.
- Support with research and data analysis.

The collaboration with the A-GAME and charter school leaders offers us an opportunity to refocus our thinking on how schools can best capture and reset goals to promote and highlight successful student outmodes based on data, experience, and personalization.

Our work with A-GAME was extraordinarily helpful. Naomi and the team facilitated several exercises that helped us reimagine our work with alternative high schools (and really all charter schools) through an equity-driven lens. This step was critical to moving our work forward and provided tangible next steps to focus on with schools. The process brought great energy to the specific need for alternative accountability.

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.

Authorizers of charter public schools are making high-stakes decisions under unprecedented conditions. Covid has disrupted lives, schools, and the data and information authorizers are accustomed to using. The A-GAME Community of Changemakers provides a safe, confidential, and structured environment to share experiences, seek advice, and learn. Together, we will advance the future of authorizing and develop new paths for evaluating schools fairly, rigorously, and equitably based on what truly matters to students, families and educators.
Are you seeking to redesign your school performance framework to measure what truly matters to your community? The A-GAME Framework redesign expands how you evaluate schools. We go beyond a one-size-fits-all model to one that embraces diversity of mission and learning models.
