Ray.Taylor and Associates are just the team to deliver customized school crisis turnaround management services. Our attention to the systemic leverage points to school performance turnaround is grounded in our understanding of change leadership, organizational management, community organization and engagement. Our comprehensive change approach assesses the organization, uses data to make decisive and needed action plans and respects the local knowledge. We can maximize the leadership skills of teachers, administrators, parents, community members, students and other system assets and focus the system’s efforts to implement immediate and lasting change. We understand that chronic failure seldom has one single source. We align turnaround efforts so the full system is coherent to the demands of reform that lasts, is equitable and delivers quality teaching and learning.
Ray.Taylor and Associates can design and build the support systems that schools in crisis need for success that:
- Make improvements to the entire system, not just one school at a time
- Help school leaders work better and smarter
- Capitalize on the individual talents of educators to form a teaching and learning support network
- Focus on results
- Build local capacity for dynamic, lasting change
