Partnering with School Districts to Improve Teaching and Learning
Achieving gains in student success begins with developing a local curriculum. But, that’s just the beginning…
COVID-19 Changes the Way We Deliver Professional Development
Educators everywhere are turning to online options to meet with colleagues and deliver instruction. Conducting professional development is no different. Offering PD online isn’t new to CLI and we’re ready to move forward!
Allow us to utilize video conferencing and online collaboration tools to work through professional development synchronously. We’ll talk face-to-face and share our screen to conduct training as usual, just online!
Your-Time PD Courses
When getting online at a specified time is too challenging (due to lack of childcare, etc.), allow your staff to access our training asynchronously in the form of an online course. We’ll provide video tutorials, samples, critique documents, have discussions, and participants can log on at their convenience!
Feel confident you’re doing the right thing the right way.
Your consultant will provide the tools you need to improve scores, improve your school culture, and bridge the gap between compliance with state requirements and making professional development meaningful for your teachers.
Make a Positive Impact on Learning
Create a foundation for learning so teachers can analyze student success and identify ways to improve. Your students will be better prepared for life after high school because well-educated kids lead to successful adults.
Create Systems that All Teachers Use
When teachers in all content areas, schools, and grade levels use the same processes for the alignment of curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices, it becomes an expectation that “this is how we do things here.”
Meet Accreditation Requirements
Make your next accreditation visit a breeze with an organization system that includes evidence of your curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices and procedures.
Save Time and Avoid Stress
You have too much to do without having to figure out what each content area, school, and grade needs to do to improve. Use our step-by-step process to make your professional development days worthwhile and meaningful.
Getting started is easy!
Improve teaching and learning with the CLI Model
Use our comprehensive, in-depth process to achieve curriculum development and alignment goals. Because we’ve been improving it since 1991, you can feel confident that it works within an evolving educational system. We’ll help you create a governing framework, guide you through the processes for developing a local curriculum, aligning instruction, and establishing common assessments. You will then have a methodology that has the potential to revolutionize your school district’s approach to curriculum development far into the future.
Lead district-wide improvements with a partnership option.
It’s important to us that we fully meet your needs and improve upon the great things that you’re already doing. That’s why we offer multiple service options.
A consultant regularly works on-site with you and your staff, guiding you through all steps of the CLI Model including governance, curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
Don’t have time to attend all of the meetings? No problem! We’re happy to act as your Curriculum Coordinator and take care of it all for you.
A consultant works with your teachers to develop a standards-based, vertically- and horizontally-aligned local curriculum.

Spoiler: it’s all good!
During the timeframe that CLI has supported our district, we saw double-digit increases on state assessment scores and teachers noted their efficacy in teaching these skills improved.
Wanda MaloneyChef Academic Officer, WY
The CLI model has not only had a positive impact on student achievement, the model has also provided teachers with a framework that establishes rigor, a common vocabulary and a common understanding underlying standards-based instruction.
Carmen AyalaState Superintendent, IL
There are many “models” out there that talk about instruction OR curriculum OR assessment, but I have not found one that speaks to all three to the depth and degree that CLI does.

The CLI Commitment
We’ll start by analyzing what is already happening in your district and maintain the work that is giving you results.
We’ll help you create a long-range plan to continue our framework over time, and will continue to help until you no longer need us.
We’ll help your staff create a strong curriculum as the foundation for instruction and assessment, and will walk you through how to evaluate your resources (like textbooks) to see where they align.
We’ll help you identify and build local leadership and optimize local “experts.”
