    About Blueprint Schools Network (“Blueprint”)

     

    Blueprint’s mission is to promote educational equity and improve life outcomes for students by partnering with school districts to plan, implement and monitor school improvement initiatives. Our strategic framework arose from an unprecedented analysis of more than 100 schools that identified five core, research-based strategies driving student achievement, common to high performing schools. These strategies include:

    1. Ensuring every student has an excellent teacher and a school leader committed to their success;
    2. Increasing instructional time;
    3. Setting clear, consistent standards for academic achievement and establishing a school-wide focus on preparing all students for college;
    4. Collecting assessment data frequently to monitor each student’s academic progress and tailoring instruction to meet the needs of all learners; and
    5. Providing daily, small group tutoring to students using highly qualified and well-trained instructors.

    Our work with schools across the country has shown that positive change is possible when these five core strategies for school improvement are implemented together as a comprehensive package. Our culture is defined by talented and mission-driven people working together to accomplish great things.  We value students’ first, integrity, sustainable results, diversity, collaboration and humility.
