Lead180 is built on a five-step framework that creates sustainable change in schools. This system has been proven time and time again to improve not only test scores, but the school’s overall climate as well. Lead180’s toolkit solves the achievement gap within College and Career Readiness Standards (CCR).

Real change starts from within
First and foremost, sustainable change must come from within. As educational institutions molding the minds of students, schools must work with a diverse demographic on a regular basis. As such, school leaders must be people-focused, with a high degree of emotional intelligence when directing a school. LEAD180 serves as a guide in helping schools create a culture of success by building the self-efficacy of parents, teachers and students. Our program provides structures and protocols to give feedback to teachers and students showing evidence that they can reach goals with support, increased effort, beliefs and goals. The LEAD180 Principles of Performance offer a constant focus on producing outcomes through methods that create greater connections with school staff and administrators.
Inaccurate data is useless
Data is useless unless it is aligned and provides accurate feedback to students. LEAD180 does just that, giving feedback to both students and teachers that is already aligned to the rigor of CCRS, teacher’s instruction, and the state’s curriculum and assessments. LEAD180 presents Four Steps to Curriculum Alignment as a method to see that all facets of teaching, learning and feedback are aligned to the cognitive rigor of CCRS. The Four Steps to Curriculum Alignment ensure that what is being taught and when it will be taught is planned prior to the school year. This allows for teachers to then plan and design their instruction and assessments to the appropriate rigor level of the intended standard or target.
Ongoing support is required for success
Schools cannot be successful without ongoing support for student and professional learning. LEAD180 helps you with every step by offering solutions for ongoing professional and student learning so schools can create effective learning structures. LEAD180 guides schools through the process of designing a multi-tiered approach to professional learning for teachers. Support for student learning is provided as part of an established data-driven culture focused on providing corrective instruction to meet the individual needs of students. As teachers focus on educating their students, LEAD180 provides coaching to support instruction and learning, while giving teachers a moment to reflect and provide feedback to one another.
