CLI Model for School Improvement

Our model for school improvement provides systems and processes for curriculum development and alignment within your district. Starting with the foundation of governance, CLI works with school districts to develop customized, local curriculum, aligned instruction, and common assessments.

More About the CLI Model

CLI Offers Workshops

CLI works hard in the field of education every day, hand-in-hand with curriculum leaders, while staying abreast of the most pressing imperatives in the field of education. We know that your professional educators need to apply current techniques for maintaining classroom transparency and reporting student achievement. Check out our one-, two-, and three-day workshops but keep in mind that we prefer to customize professional development to meet your specific needs!

Our Services

Full-Service Contract

CLI’s full-service contract begins with 20 days of on-site service. A CLI consultant works regularly on-site with your staff, guiding you through all steps of the CLI Model. Additionally, your consultant provides off-site services as needed such as preparing agendas, providing template examples, and reviewing curriculum and assessment documents as requested by the district.

Partial-Service Contract


CLI’s partial service contract begins with 13 days in year one and progresses up to 15 days by the third year.  The process and training are similar to a full-service contract, but this service is designed for a smaller district.  The model is fully implemented, however, the pace is modified and designed to accommodate the needs of our districts whose staff numbers are limited.

Optional-Service Contract

In this contract agreement, CLI provides on-site services ranging from 4 to 12 days through the contract year. Options include:



    • Your consultant, training on key points of the CLI Model.


    • Your consultant schedules visits during your regularly planned in-service days.


    • Work days may be customized according to your district’s curriculum, instruction, or assessment needs.


Consortium Services

As a cost-saving measure, multiple districts sometimes join together to create a CLI network called a consortium.  Some states already have smaller districts working together in organized, cooperative groups that are ready-made consortiums.  Member districts of the CLI consortium participate jointly, with representatives on both the Curriculum Coordinating Council and Subject Area Committees.
