"I have experienced the transformational, team empowering breakthrough of going full circle with the 'Continuous School Improvement Framework' using the 4th Edition’s updated tools and information. Commitment to the comprehensive framework and wealth of ideas as outlined in the book is key to: building data literacy, developing the team’s clear, shared vision for success, tracking the progress of all students in alignment with curriculum expectations, and monitoring the effectiveness of programs and processes for sustained learning and improvement."
--Hélène Boudreau, Educator, Ontario, Canada
"Schools today are being held accountable for every child’s learning. As education leaders, we must learn how to design and implement a data-driven instructional system to facilitate sustained, measurable learning on the part of all students. This book is an excellent resource to assist school improvement teams in this effort."
