we believe that if schools can learn from other schools, we can improve student achievement in Kansas City


One third of the bottom 5% of districts in Missouri are in the KC metro. Only 25 districts in the KC metro are in the top 5% of districts in Missouri and only 8 districts in the KC metro recieved 100% of their annual performance points.

The reality is schools must continously improve. There are reservoirs of expertise that exist but much remains untapped and unseen. For this reason, we create supportive, face to face, right-fit professional learning spaces for educators to see, share, and refine their practice across schools in Kansas City.

Our goal is for no students to be served by a KC metro district performing in the bottom 25% of Missouri.
