Koru brings a coherent, evidence-based improvement process to teaming at school systems and districts.
We believe that school systems are successful when they have productive collaboration toward focused goals, evidence-based decision making, an equity lens, and ongoing learning to improve practice. We co-create and customize each engagement to build a comprehensive improvement plan with these foundational elements of high performance culture.

We support leadership teams to bring coherence to their work and to focus professional learning on high-impact areas for improvement. We aim to align professional learning in strategic ways that have the highest impact on teaching and learning, meeting intermediate benchmarks for progress and achieving long-term and sustained change system-wide.
ON-SITE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
We believe we can have the greatest impact by working directly with teams on-site within their own context. We facilitate professional learning sessions on data-driven collaborative improvement, design thinking, equity, and other areas to provide a strong foundation and shared experience and approach for ongoing implementation work.
We support teams through a full improvement cycle. Through a combination of executive coaching, on-site and virtual follow ups with school and system teams, site visits and observations, and additional workshops and/or interventions, we help teams develop new habits, improve their practice, and build their capacity to sustain the work.
We help teams to see and celebrate their successes and to identify and act on areas for improvement. Every engagement includes impact assessment to evaluate the degree to which we have achieved our shared vision for success and to identify potential and map out a pathway for deepening and expanding impact.
