A key phrase for our Studer Education team is “Connect to Purpose.” We mean, remember why we are here. Connect to the reason we work hard, every day, to make education a better place for students, families, employees, educators, and leaders.

Education Blog

A few minutes ago I was reminded yet again that the response “because I’m your Mother and I said so,” is not necessarily a favorite “why” response for those on the receiving end of the statement. Luckily, I wasn’t reminded of this because of any recent communication with my Mom! Instead, the reminder was from one of my colleagues and highlights more broadly the need to communicate “why” from a leader, employee, or learner perspective…

How Does EBL K12 Help You?

School Boards

As a board member you want the district to achieve the highest results possible and you want to hold the superintendent and district leadership accountable for results. Your community is depending on you to do so.

Superintendents

As a superintendent you hold the ultimate responsibility for ensuring that students achieve their highest levels and teachers and leaders have the skill sets to get this job done. The board holds you accountable and your employees depend on you to lead them.

Senior Leaders

As senior leaders on the executive team you hold very defined responsibilities aligned to results including student achievement, people, service and/or finance. You want to know what is expected of you so that you can guide those who depend on you to lead them.

School Principals

As school principals you hold the ultimate responsibility for ensuring students in your school achieve their highest levels and teachers and staff have the skills sets to get this job done. Parents of students attending your school depend on you to do the best for their children.

Department Leader

As department leaders you are responsible for results aligned to your respective departments including people, service, finance, and quality indicators associated with job responsibilities. You want to know what is expected of you and your department so you can guide those who depend on you to lead them.

K12 Accountability System and Continuous Improvement Process

goalsDistrict goals and measures on the key drivers for being an excellent school district are created and approved by the superintendent and board. These goals and measures are then cascaded to every department and every school so that the action items by goal will drive overall district results.
As part of the EBL K12, employee engagement is defined as the extent to which leaders provide a work environment that supports and coaches employees to reach their highest potential. The Studer Education Employee Engagement Survey measures this construct. Partner districts can benchmark their results with other partner districts.
As part of the EBL K12, parent satisfaction is defined as the extent to which parents are satisfied with the education their child is receiving at his or her school.  The Studer Education Parent Satisfaction Survey measures this construct. Partner districts can benchmark their results with other partner districts.
Some districts choose to measure student engagement or the extent to which students believe they have every opportunity to be successful in the learning environment. The Studer Education Student Engagement Survey measures this construct. Partner districts can benchmark their results with other partner districts.
As part of the EBL K12, district support services is defined as the extent to which district departments provide excellent services to schools. The Studer Education District Support Services Survey measures this construct. Partner districts can benchmark their results with other partner districts.
A key measure of every school district is student achievement.  As part of the EBL K12 framework, leaders determine the key measures that define school district excellence and represent local, state and national accountability measures.
School districts serve employees who provide a service to schools, such as Human Resource, Finance, Food Service, Transportation, etc.  The varying department personnel have defined job responsibilities that must be performed at the highest levels.  As part of the EBL K12, measurable quality indicators are defined by department and individual leader.
The ultimate job of school boards is to ensure that school district leaders are spending public funds in a way that produces the best results.  As part of the EBL K12, district leaders calculate the Return on Student Achievement for dollars spent in areas such as curriculum, materials, programs, personnel, etc.
