Improvement Networks

Join other school teams in 2021-22 to learn and apply an improvement approach to a common problem and achieve rapid improvement.

Modeled after the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Breakthrough Series College, these improvement networks are designed to support school teams in implementing and adapting existing knowledge and proven practices to their local settings in order to accomplish a common aim. Each network provides a collaborative structure for learning and action, combining subject matter experts and improvement advisors with school-based practitioners to make targeted changes that produce dramatic results. School teams of three to five people commit to a 10 to 15 month program that includes an introductory webinar, three face-to-face learning sessions, and three site-based action periods.
