Our Impact

“Studer Education helped us create and implement a Strategic Plan for the entire district. This plan has allowed us to stay focused on specific goals related to school improvement. In our work with school leaders, the plan has served as the basis for “why” we do what we do. It also defines what our goals are and how we will accomplish them.”
Deidre Roemer, Superintendent • West Allis-West Milwaukee School District, WI.


“Now is a great time to get started. If you don’t have it in place, defining with your team what customer success looks like and maybe, even more importantly today in this crisis, what does an engaged workforce look like? How are you going to measure it and how are you going to build that culture? Because that investment for us in the past few years is paying dividends— literally hourly— for us.”
Dale Shaver, Director of Parks and Land Use • Waukesha County, WI.


“The culture building that we’ve done over the last 8 years of just really focusing on leadership as a behavior rather than title because there’s no way we could have done what we’ve done if we were reliant on just our leadership team.”
Corey Golla , Former Superintendent • School District of Menomonee Falls, WI.


“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.
