After a year like no other, how do we increase the opportunity to learn?
What is STAAR 2.0 and what do I need to know for next year?


As a campus principal, it is hard to know it all! The 2021-2022 school year is an opportunity for principals to have a renewed focus on data and instruction through the lens of the next generation of STAAR. The leading learning series: staar4ward helps campus principals focus on opportunities, leverage resources differently, and lead learning in a new way.


We’ll look at school systems that incorporate post-pandemic strategies to help students meet their full potential; how we can encourage leaders to double down on feedback loops of instruction, learning, and assessment; and hold everyone accountable while celebrating successes.


Topics include:

  • finding focus in a sea of data
  • planning for rigorous instruction
  • rethinking intervention to create more opportunities to learn
  • aligning thinking in the classroom to STAAR 2.0
  • making connections to supplemental instruction (HB4545)


Learning videos will be posted to help leaders choose their focus for independent learning.

leadership team support?

Effective leadership teams are powerful guides for making positive change in schools. Creating systemic ways for schools to execute important priorities while providing a culture of confidence among all staff and students is key to success. With intentional planning, leadership teams can increase the achievement and engagement of staff and students through a growth mindset focused on curriculum, instruction, assessment, and positive culture.


Learning and implementing leadership initiatives can require extra support to build the capacity of the leadership team as a whole. The leadership team support model leverages tools and strategies in practical, day-to-day actions and results. Campuses have different needs and being able to dive deeper in the application of the work provides a foundation for greater success.


From general consulting to leading systems, we can help you identify and implement the work that meets the needs of your specific campus or district. Topics will vary depending on campus needs, but can include data analysis, student engagement, leading systems, intervention, and much more.
