  • Are we effectively empowering families to engage with the school and support student success?
  • What organizations should we partner with in our community to promote student learning?
  • What are effective strategies for building and maintaining community partnerships?
  • What does the community think about a key issue or initiative?

A Word from One of Our K-12 Education Clients:

The Middle Schools for Tomorrow Workgroup was brought together to allow parents, students, teachers, and the larger community to take an active role in crafting their vision of the future for ACPS middle schools. The workgroup was asked to create their idealized middle school, take a critical look at current practices within Alexandria middle schools, and ultimately lay the groundwork for how the division should move strategically forward.

Hanover Research, in conjunction with school division staff, were integral in this work by supplying best practices research around identified topics, crafting and administering a survey, providing quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and responding to stakeholder feedback throughout the six-month process. Decisions are only as good as the information used in forming them, and the research and data analysis provided allowed the stakeholder group to make the highest quality decisions not only in reaction to where our middle schools had been, but more importantly where they must go.
