Alignment and Coherence to Advance Equity
Guidance for State and Local Education Agencies to Improve the Alignment and Coherence of Whole-Person Initiatives
When educators at every level of the K–12 system—from the state level to the classroom—work in aligned and coherent ways to sustain the conditions that support whole-person learning and development, equitable outcomes are more likely to result.
We help state and school district leaders improve whole-person initiatives and enhance inter- and intra-agency collaboration with facilitation, coaching, and consulting services by helping teams:
- Develop a shared vision for serving the whole person
- Examine and understand what current whole-person programs exist
- Take steps to align existing programs and plan for new programs that cohere to your shared vision
- Use specific tools to set goals and improve collaboration, communication, data use, and capacity around whole-person initiatives
Our core service offering in this area is Serving the Whole Person: Guidance for Alignment and Coherence for State and Local Education Agencies. The basis of this service is a series of comprehensive, adaptable, research-informed, and field-tested Alignment and Coherence Guides for local and state agencies.
