Hanover guides K-12 leaders in tackling academic and administration challenges in a rapidly-changing environment to ensure that students, parents, and staff have the tools they need for all students to succeed.
Hanover built its K-12 Solutions based on more than 10 years of experience supporting over 700 school districts, regional education agencies, state departments of education, independent schools, and non-profit organizations solving critical instructional and administrative challenges. Our comprehensive solutions use a multi-methods approach including data analytics, survey research, benchmarking, best practice identification, in-depth interviews, and focus groups to help K-12 leaders in every department manage their toughest challenges.
Hanover’s Research Solutions provide key insights for leadership across instructional and administrative departments
Evaluate Programs: Measure program effectiveness to support informed investments in resources that maximize student outcomes and manage costs.
Build Safe and Supportive Environments: Create an environment that supports the academic, cultural, and social-emotional needs of students, parents, and staff through a comprehensive annual assessment of climate and culture.
One of our biggest goals for the year is to create an infrastructure that will have the capacity to focus on high-quality professional growth of staff. We decided to engage with Hanover because we needed an outside ‘eye’ to provide recommendations and best practices concerning our greatest needs. We anticipate the Professional Development Project having the biggest impact on our institution—if we can improve all of the adults in our division, then outcomes for students will improve, and that is what public education is about. Institutions do not have all of the answers, therefore seeing different perspectives is crucial.
