Three essential elements:

1. Situational Assessment

World Savvy scans and gathers data in a systematic and participatory manner to generate a deeper understanding of the strengths, assets, challenges, and barriers to redesigning the learner experience.

2. Custom Program Design

A recommended program design is determined based on the results of a situational assessment and in collaboration with school leadership. Some or all of the below program elements could be included in your school or district’s customized program design.

Potential Program Elements:

Workshops and Institutes

Coaching for Implementation

Curriculum Design Support

Resource Development

Knowledge to Action Design Challenges

Site Based Student Showcases

3. Evaluation

Baseline metrics are identified within the initial situational assessment. Key Progress Indicators (KPIs) are then developed in alignment with identified goals/outcomes.

Change begins with you. Our multi-year school partnerships are designed collaboratively with school leaders to align with each building’s strategic vision and goals.
