1. We serve our clients best by collaborating and learning with them.
We do not have fixed solutions to problems. After understanding clients’ values and objectives, we collect and analyze data with them to determine a solution that best fits their needs.
2. We apply global knowledge to local solutions.
We draw upon existing research, strategies and tools, making adaptations as necessary, to develop a unique approach for each client.
3. We believe that accountability is an essential aspect of successful organizations.
Establishing and sustaining high performance requires regular and systematic assessment of progress toward high standards.
“SchoolWorks is a private educational consulting organization
that enjoys a close professional relationship with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Since the year 1998, SchoolWorks
has played a supportive role in the development and implementation
of the Massachusetts School and District Accountability System.
In an advisory capacity, Mr. McFadden and several of his staff
joined our effort to design a results-oriented school and
district accountability system aligned to our state’s standards-based
student assessment system.
SchoolWorks continues to contribute
to our on-site review process by providing experienced, well-prepared
school evaluators who serve as chairpersons to lead individual
review teams and develop written reports of team findings. SchoolWorks
has consistently provided high-quality personnel who are courteous and professional and who represent the Department’s efforts in an exemplary
manner. The level of interaction, discussion and pointed inquiry
provided by SchoolWorks evaluators in all aspects of our school
review work is exemplary.”
