Our Impact

“We’re in year five of our Studer Education partnership and it goes back to the basics of authentically engaging staff – re-grounding with rounding, 30/60/90 days, and rewards and recognition. That’s allowed me to reengage with staff authentically. Reward and recognition is [also] good for me. It’s good for my soul. It makes me feel better – proving that those little recognitions helps leaders as well. The tactics and strategies from Studer – they work.”
Sean Dorsey, Innovation Leader • Sand Creek Zone District 49, CO


“By using improvement practices and strategies it has allowed me to not go off feelings, but on what the data is telling me. This has also pushed me to not just go through the motions, but always look for a more efficient way to improve the system for the benefit of staff, students, and families.”
Trevor Syring, Vice Principal • River Mill Elementary School, OR.


“Studer Education has been instrumental in helping us with our two-way communication structures. Trust between our administration and employees was a big priority when we first began. I just finished rounding for the third straight year with every school and employee group. By far, this was the most positive of all. The overall culture in our school district is positive because of rounding. I heard so many comments about us communicating the ‘why’ of the decisions.”
Mark Martin, Superintendent • Meade County School District, KY.


“We weren’t new to the idea of collecting data, but we were very new to sharing the results. As district leadership, I felt it was very important that we be the ones to take that first step in the journey of identifying the data points, sharing the results, and then creating measurable and specific goals so that we could model what true continuous improvement looks like for a school district…[Studer Education] really took us beyond the stage of observational data to give us true data points and measurements where we could have deep and focused conversations. ”
Dr. Tim Dilg, Superintendent • Valley Park School District, MO.
