At Edwards, we realize that teachers cannot endure another cute PowerPoint presentation, a humorous presenter, or lengthy book study. Instead, we tailor our professional development to focus on the specific needs of the district and individual schools. Dr. Steven Edwards, EES President and CEO, often says “our work isn’t sexy but it is extremely important and meaningful.”
Framing Your Success, Edwards’ model for school improvement, is an intensive comprehensive professional learning program for continuous and sustainable district-wide improvement. The model provides on-going, consistent, focused trainings that are based on district and individual school needs. Framing Your Success focuses on student learning, data-based decision making and people and practices instead of programs. We also provide participants with numerous opportunities to apply, practice, reflect, and reinforce the newly-learned practices.
In essence, Framing Your Success is a practical mechanism to turn ideals into reality. Through the use of face-to-face visits, virtual follow-ups, on-going assessment and fine tuning with customized rubrics, Edwards Educational Services, Inc. enables your educational community to develop a cadre of high-quality principals and instructional leaders (teachers) committed to creating a student-centered, high-achieving learning environment. Framing Your Success moves schools from a superficial compliance with directives and use of programs to a strengths-based model to improve your school.
