Members of our team at Atlantic Research Partners will support the new venture that Mary Stafford and I founded: Distinctive Schools. This new venture (URL = http://www.distinctiveschools.org ) will focus on three main areas. Most importantly, we will serve as a new school management organization, starting with three schools in the 2011-12 school year. These schools, part of the CICS network of campuses are CICS West Belden, CICS Bucktown, and CICS Prairie. Due to the already strong levels of academic practice, we will have the chance to highlight our work in a “good to great” journey focusing on teaching quality and educator empowerment in decision making as the bedrock of practice.

Have a great weekend.
