We are a partnership of some of the country’s leading authorities on K-12 school turnaround and improvement. In addition to being former practitioners and school leaders, over the past 13 years, we have on-the-ground expertise partnering with teachers and leaders in over 500 public and private schools, 70 districts and at least 23 states to drive systemic, data-based, and dramatic performance improvements.
Bedrock partners with schools and districts to build the support, systems, and processes necessary to achieve dramatic results. Due to our unique combination of experience, skills, and expertise, we are one of the only organizations in the country capable of taking a comprehensive and customized approach to helping education leaders, teachers and organizations achieve transformative improvement. In that spirit, we never take a cookie cutter approach by focusing on one predetermined tool, program or initiative.
We always work with our partners onsite, in their respective schools and districts. Delivering our services locally allows a critical mass of leaders and teachers to engage in this work firsthand. This approach is far more effective than hearing content second hand from a comparatively small group of teachers and leaders who have participated in off-site development programs or conferences.
We begin every engagement by helping our partners assess the effectiveness of current strategies, practices and programs and identify focus areas to leverage for improvement. Based on this assessment, we work closely with our partners to build their capacity for driving transformative change and sustainable results. We do this by developing and delivering programs customized to help teachers and leaders develop the competencies, skills, knowledge and tools to address their most significant challenges. We also provide follow-up support to help our partners implement new learning and build capacity for long-term success and sustainability.
While our collaboration with each partner may vary in focus, form and duration depending on their specific needs, Bedrock adheres to the following principles:
