Services and Support

Currently the Alliance provides schools with a variety of services. While our belief is that any meaningful change will come about through any schools own democratic commitment to a long-term process of reflection and renewal, our assistance may be helpful in those efforts. We recommend that schools make a substantive and systemic effort. We do provide stand-alone presentations to administration and faculty, but lasting improvement will likely require developing an internal leadership structure and steering team. We can assist in the forming and training of that leadership team. A very critical component of any change effort is that of assessment. We have developed a very extensive system of assessment that can be used by the steering team and/or the consultant team.
