District Success

“The Center is sensitive to the complexities of district-level improvement – the people themselves are savvy. They operate from a professional framework that is presentable and clear. They are advocates for supporting leadership with technical assistance. Superintendents are concerned about how the Center’s work will fit into their district work. The Center allows for adaptation.”
Dr. Bob Villanova, Former Superintendent;
Director of Executive Leadership Program at University of Connecticut


“The SIIP Network is an invaluable resource for me as a district leader.  Our community of practice norms around confidentiality and candor allow us to support each other in the challenging work of solving problems of practice.  Agendas include time for deep dives into real-time issues and collaborative ‘think tank’ work to promote innovation and resourcefulness.  Expert facilitators provide current research, readings and protocols that can be replicated in-district as high-leverage improvement strategies.  It is a rare opportunity to be in the company of other like-minded administrators who are committed to building capacity for transformation, systemic change and each other’s success.  I am a devoted fan of the Center’s work.”
