“…understanding the principles of improvement science, aim statements, conducting PDSA cycles, and all the lingo that goes with improvement work felt disjointed in the way we were going about the work, even though we were doing some of the improvement cycle stuff inside the Oxford district. It was the partnership with Studer Education, scorecards, and action plan implementation that what I’ve learned about continuous improvement brought together in a systematic, intentional way, that would lead to improvement across systems in the Oxford School District.”
— Bradley Roberson, Superintendent • Oxford School District
“Embracing continuous improvement as a leader means first looking at the systems in place within the organization and unnecessary hassles that are getting in the way of achieving the mission and vision of our school site/district. When we look to improve the system first, we see the people of the organization embrace a growth mindset and a change of culture.”
— Casey Rangel, Principal • Burton School District, CA.
“I really like the ‘Cascading Leadership’ emphasis. It creates a culture of ownership and accountability to not only improve culture and results in our schools now, but gives future leaders experience and tools to be great in the future. People are much more likely to stay and invest themselves if they feel they have ownership and value.”
— Drew Taylor, Chief Information Officer • Hopkins County Schools, KY.

Ocean Springs School District uses feedback from parent engagement and satisfaction surveys to enhance student and parent involvement. The district is focusing on providing more positive feedback to parents and students, based on survey results indicating a desire for such communication. Teachers are creatively implementing this goal, with examples like a third-grade teacher placing positive signs in outstanding students’ yards as a surprise recognition, receiving positive feedback from parents and fostering a positive environment for both students and teachers in the district.
