The Center’s core practice is partnering with districts and other organizations to strengthen their leadership, systems, and improvement strategies in service of improved and more equitable outcomes for students. We do this through coaching, consulting, and capacity building.
Founded in 1994 with generous initial support from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, the Center continues to enhance the capacity of schools and districts to improve outcomes for all students.
We offer a suite of interrelated programs and services. Moreover, we partner with our clients, providing context-specific support and guidance.
The Center helped us focus on ensuring higher-quality classroom experiences for all students, and challenged us to think at the edges as well as the middle, addressing core issues tied to diversity, cultural challenges and equity issues in funding and learning, always striving for a more level playing field.
