Our Impact

“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.


“We introduced the strategies that Studer teaches and survey tools, which have helped us achieve much more consistency in leadership…Two of our first big steps were conducting employee engagement and customer satisfaction surveys. We tied those results directly to the leader scorecards, which became their evaluation. Using survey results to evaluate leaders motivated us to get on board pretty quickly. The process made getting on board necessary because you can’t score well If you’re not on board.”
Jon Malone, Regional Director and Chief Executive • Northwestern Illinois Association, IL.


“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.
