Lanier High, Montgomery Public Schools

“Working with Class Measures provided me with the opportunity as a school leader to receive valuable input from a diverse group of qualified educators on how to improve the learning culture of my school. The process was very beneficial and inclusive. Administrators, teachers, staff members, parents, and students all were able to provide feedback on norms and common practices among all stakeholders. The feedback that Class Measures provided was non-threatening and practical. We were able to improve and optimize our learning environment as a result of their review.”

All the while, teachers are recording vital data in our student management system so we can easily evidence our progress. Now, 20% of our students are proficient in ELA (up from 2% in less than 2 years.”
