Our Partners in Oregon
“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
“Leaders also need great coaches. You cannot pick any athletic sports team that isn’t coached by a coach, and this is an opportunity that Studer Education provides along with its tools and tactics and a recipe for success…we couldn’t have done it without (our leader coach) Kathy Oropallo. Kathy is a part of who we are as a culture… it’s so fun to able to see our successes and our wins continue to collect with someone who we have trusted dearly to help us support in extremely vulnerable experiences.”
— Ryan Carpenter, Superintendent, Estacada School District
“I was the first person to say ‘This (rounding) is kind of lame. I don’t really want to do this as a superintendent.’ But when you follow the protocols and build relationships you see change and you have people begin to develop further trust in the process and district.”
— Dave Kline, Superintendent, Colton School District
“We started through wanting to learn more about the continuous improvement processes/improvement science work at Carnegie. Pat Greco did a local training. This session resonated with the Redmond community. They were in a mindset of wanting to operationalize continuous improvement. The connection with Studer surfaced as it’s bigger than simply PDSAs.”
— Linda Seeberg, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning, Redmond School District
