Our Premise. Our Purpose.All students will learn at high levels when instruction meets their needs. What a student has learned well already, is something she/he has been taught well already. And what a student has not learned well yet, is something she/he has not been taught well yet. Student learning, then, is an “effect” whose “cause” lies in the quality and effectiveness of educational practices. If we want improved outcomes for students, the starting point must be the continuous improvement of teaching practices, leadership practices and organizational practices, because they are the precursors to student learning. At Performance Fact, our mission is clear: To develop capable leaders, strengthen professional practices, and achieve extraordinary student results. We collaborate with our clients by aligning our external expertise with their internal vision for their schools and communities. Our sole commitment and “soul purpose” is supporting educational leaders and practitioners with a system of solutions for building stronger schools and accelerating learning for all students … from thought to results.
