School Improvement

Develop a Pathway to Reach School Improvement Goals

Today’s education landscape has changed drastically, and schools that have embarked on school improvement plans will face even greater challenges. HMH can partner with low-performing schools and districts to develop a pathway to school improvement with truly connected, evidence-based solutions that prioritize equity and support students, educators, and leaders to effectively boost student achievement.

Analyze and Strengthen Learning Outcomes

HMH can help you maximize learning for all students by examining student outcomes through various lenses including grade level, school, and other demographics. Our ultimate goal is to create a personalized solution uniquely designed to ensure that all students are achieving their potential and that all aspects of your MTSS model are being monitored through the lens of student learning.

  • ESSA
    • Coherence Mapping: Schools and districts work alongside their HMH team to map out resources using MTSS/RtI templates, ensuring appropriate resources are matched to student need.
    • Planning for Success: HMH then provides unique visualizations of the collected data to help unpack and uncover areas of strength and opportunities for improvement in your MTSS model.

Teacher Support

With nationally recognized professional development for teachers and leaders, HMH partners with schools to create meaningful experiences that foster long-term, sustainable growth.

  • Answering important questions
    • Continuous Implementation Support: Guided implementation pathways and on-demand resources included with HMH subscriptions ensure teacher success and build confidence.
    • Ongoing Professional Learning: Personalized instructional coaching and live, online courses build teacher knowledge on topics ranging from SEL to writing to differentiation in the math classroom.
    • Leadership and Advisory: Consultants from the Center for Model Schools provide school and district leaders help in achieving district strategic goals.

Evidence-Based Instruction

For students who have fallen behind, HMH offers flexible, evidence-based instruction that accelerates growth while also addressing the needs of the whole student through social-emotional learning.
