LSI empowers schools and districts to transform core instruction and leadership practices, resulting in rapid gains in student learning.
SCHOOLS FOR RIGOR: STEPS TO SUCCESS
LSI’s Schools for Rigor focuses on developing effective teachers and leaders with aligned support across all levels. Steps include:
Discover how to build a culture of continuous improvement and student achievement with this LSI-facilitated on-site planning day to explore desired outcomes and set criteria.
At the critical stage, LSI performs a diagnostic walkthrough and analysis called RigorWalk. We’ll facilitate interviews and surveys with your leadership team and debrief our findings.
Work with LSI to help teachers master powerful teaching strategies and skills, and enable leaders at every level—from district to school to classroom—to drive implementation into practice.
Use continuous data cycles to measure progress, including four RigorWalks and 30-day evidences, which means no more waiting until the end of the year to gauge student learning.
Get exclusive access to expert consultants, resources, and technology tools that you can use to increase rigor to meet the standards, strengthen leadership, and utilize data.

PRAISE FOR LEARNING SCIENCES
The LSI initiative was yielding evidence that could be seen immediately in the classrooms. Teachers were excited about it—there was a collective pride and synergy because they knew they were part of something very special.

We are making progress this year that I have never seen in my whole career. I’ve been in many districts and seen many programs, but I cannot believe what I’ve seen this year with this instructional model.
