Faced with heightened budget uncertainty, worsening teacher shortages, and expanding community expectations, K-12 organizations must operate both efficiently and effectively. From teacher recruitment and retention to community and family engagement, Administrative Solutions can help K-12 institutions make strategic decisions to improve district effectiveness.
Arcadia Unified has been heavily engaged in efforts to reimagine what education in a public school district can look like with learners squarely at the center. We quickly realized that having a strong research capacity, both internally and externally, was essential when it comes to setting direction and making well-informed decisions as we explore the possibilities. Through our conversations with Hanover Research, it became apparent that forming a partnership with them could help us achieve our goals. Specifically, we believe that Hanover can help us form project efficacy reviews and create a foundation of research literature that will guide our pilots as we explore different elements of personalization in education, including flexible classroom environments, increasing student agency, student goal setting and open educational resources.
