On: Diagnostic Review
We chose Precision to conduct our Diagnostic Review because of their unique approach and tools. Expectations were exceeded. The analysis was timely, sound, and actionable. And, rather than an evaluation, Precision left us with an empowering improvement process.

On: Diagnostic Review
The Precision School Improvement Team did a great job providing a diagnostic assessment of our school. The feedback was well received by our faculty, and led us (with Precision's help) to develop a meaningful Unified Improvement Plan.

Diagnostic Review & Improvement Planning

We specialize in school performance diagnostics and improvement planning. Our Diagnostic Reviews are performed in relation to "Colorado's Standard Indicators for Continuous School Improvement."

Our Approach allows our team to gather between 450 and 600 indicators of performance in just 2 days. Our Tools ensure inter-rater-reliability and help illuminate root causes. Our Findings inform the school's performance improvement planning process. Uniquely, we revisit our schools to conduct a follow-up Progress Monitoring Review to help school leaders determine if they are on the path of continuous performance improvement.

Elevating Innovative Ideas Of Teachers
Dedicated teachers are always imagining ways to improve themselves and their schools,. But they often lack the means or know how to put them into practice.

Our technology allows us to quickly create functioning prototypes needed to validate teacher-inspired improvement initiatives and we have helped implement a number of them. One idea was to "make classroom observations truly developmental, rather than evaluative." Another was to "use data to help teachers become authentic standards-based assessors of student progress." The latter was particularly successful and triggered the launch of Precision Prep . Results of our work with teachers were presented at the 2013 National Learning Forward Conference. The unique perspectives of those who work directly with students every day hold the keys to unlocking sustainable improvement in our schools. If you're an educator with a dream for your students, we want to help make it real. If you're an education leader who would like to learn more about these innovative methods, please contact us.

Classroom Peer Observation
The classroom is where student academic growth is impacted the most. This is why we believe that authentic continuous improvement disciplines must be embedded in every classroom. Properly designed classroom observation practices produce data that teachers will embrace as their own. The data are objective, research/standards based, organized for analysis, and immediately actionable by the teacher.

Precision's observation approach focuses on how time is utilized in the classroom. Our methods quantify, and paint a picture of, the teacher's use of research-based strategies, and organizes the data in a way to support both teacher-level and school-level improvement planning. We work with each school to implement a sustainable observation process that teachers embrace. Our innovative approach to classroom observation was presented at the 2013 National Learning Forward Conference and recognized by the Colorado Education Association because it was devised with and for teachers.

School Scheduling - It's About Time
Few structures effect the learning time of every student more than their school's schedule. Yet, too often, these are dictated by needs of adults, rather than a student-centered performance improvement plan. Scheduling is an area of focus for Precision because every school's capacity to achieve its student performance goals is determined, in great part, by how school time is allocated in relation to those goals.

Advisory Services & Workshops
Performance improvement goals almost always present new challenges. And sometimes these challenges lie in areas unfamiliar to the educational team responsible for achieving the goals. Sometimes the team understands "what" their destination is, but needs help developing the roadmap that will get them there. Precision is a network of experienced educators and facilitators who can help develop the plans, or facilitate workshops, in areas such as Shared Leadership, Cultural Responsiveness, Tiered Intervention, SPED, UIP development and others.
