Education Resource Strategies
For over a decade, Education Resource Strategies, Inc. (ERS) has helped leaders of urban school districts strategically reallocate their resources to improve student performance. This work identifies seven Core Transformational Strategies that support high-performing schools; in high-functioning districts, resources (people, time, and money) are aligned to support these strategies. The Core Transformational Strategies include: (1) School Funding: Ensure equitable, transparent, and flexible funding across schools adjusted for student need; (2) Teaching: Restructure teaching to foster individual and team effectiveness and professional growth; (3) School Design: Support schools in organizing talent, time, and money to maximize learning; (4) Instructional Support: Ensure access to aligned curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development; (5) Leadership: Build school and district leader capacity; (6) Central Services: Redesign central roles for empowerment, accountability, and efficiency; and (7) Partnerships: Partner with families and communities. This questionnaire is designed to enhance understanding how well the resources in a district are aligned to support these Transformational Strategies. Instructions for how to use the questionnaire and interpret the results are included.
