Our Theory of Action
When it comes to increasing student achievement, school leaders often know what needs to be done, but struggle with how to actually do it. Concentricity is our way to help schools determine how to improve and reach their goals. Concentric Educational Solutions (CES) works with schools and school districts to assess the situation and determine a course of action for implementing sustainable change. Addressing the four components (Organizational and Leadership Development, School Culture and Climate, Student Support Services, and Special Education Support) with a focus on student achievement, Concentricity applies a structured process for tracking and evaluating improvements quickly while leveraging the existing supports within an organization at every level.
The CES team brings knowledge, experience and expertise in school district management, organizational strategy and school leadership. By making this expertise available to schools, CES focuses on ensuring that its approach is driven by the specific needs of its clients. We begin consulting engagements with a needs assessment and then match the school with the appropriate solutions. The benefit of this needs-driven approach is that it allows for incremental improvement and accommodates the wide array of challenges and strengths that are present across different schools. In delivering its consulting product, CES also makes a point of infusing its work with an element of organizational development. CES’ goal is to not just give its clients theoretical solutions, or even just to help implement them, but rather CES seeks to embed its solutions within the structures of the organization so that the changes are lasting and meaningful.
