The ullc strategy
The ULLC process begins with comprehensive diagnostic visits
and interviews. Prior to the development of a personalized plan, we carefully
consider the following sources of information:
Baseline Data Analysis
District and School Mission Statements
District, State and Federal Mandates
Specific School and District Needs Highlighted During our Diagnostic Process.
Our school support is specifically tailored for each district and each individual school.
Our process typically involves:
- Diagnosing the specific barriers to excellence within individual schools;
- Training district and school educators in research-based best practices; and
- Coaching staff to collaboratively develop and fully implement tailored, data-driven action plans that target the needs identified in our diagnostic process. This process provides a pathway to equity and excellence for all students.
The Key to S.A.M.E Success
These domains (Social-Academic-Moral) can only thrive in a culture of Distributed Leadership. This means that all stakeholders are united by a common mission and use data-driven plans and values that drive daily action. Regardless of grade-levels or subject areas, all of the kids belong to all of us.
Using this framework to guide our work, we tailor interventions to meet academic and social-emotional needs of schools in (K-12) urban, suburban and rural districts throughout the United States.
Schools are complex systems, not just assemblages of components. Making real change — the kind that pays off in real improvement in learning — requires a comprehensive, far-reaching approach. The essential elements include: effective leadership, high-yield instructional strategies, and social-emotional support for students and staff.
