UNPACK THE GAP
Our goal is to help school systems understand the root causes of why gaps are occurring. Our team then develops custom professional development plans (based on data) to unpack the gaps and accelerate student achievement.
The state of education is undergoing many changes with the impact of the pandemic which highlighted a myriad of disparities affecting teaching and learning. Ranging from student engagement, teacher retention, trauma, student identities, and experiences, to name just a few concerns, are under review. Although these factors can be quite overwhelming, they can be overcome by the resilience of educators, students, and families with guided support, research, data, and collective efficacy.
WHAT IS THE ELAM LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE?
Dr. Donna Elam, the founder of the Elam Leadership Institute (ELI), developed the nationally recognized Equity of Effort Framework based on her extensive fieldwork with governmental agencies and school districts.
The Framework is grounded in research, addressing every aspect of the educational system from policies to practice. Equity of Effort is operationalized using a logic model. This unique planning process guides leaders and practitioners in understanding and implementing proven equitable practices across all sectors of the system.
Our goal is to work with educators to produce results that close the gap while accelerating student achievement
