Structures and Supports: Building a Throughline Approach to District Partnership

Bank Street is committed to collaborative, systemic district reform that supports every layer of the school system so that districts are able to thoughtfully plan and implement large-scale instructional improvement initiatives to achieve maximum impact on student learning. The Bank Street Education Center has developed a “throughline” approach to district reform, designed to support districts across the system to foster conditions that enable schools to act as units of change and embed strong practices through teacher and leaders and teams. This Snapshot of Practice take a closer look at the Bank Street Education Center’s throughline approach and some of the districts they have partnered with to implement district reform.
