Welcome to Schools Cubed. We are a new organization with the primary interest of helping schools and districts succeed. Though we may be new, our organization is comprised of individuals with years of experience helping schools create increased student outcomes. Being a school leader faced with current educational demands is a challenging position. We hope to make Schools Cubed a one-stop shop for school leaders. We want to regularly update you on what is new in education and the impact it has on school leaders, while at the same time offering you resources that are practical and efficient to implement. Further, we hope you reach out to us. Let us know what works in your school. We hope to share each other’s resources, because when we help each other, we help our students.
We’re starting with a scheduling tool that we urge you to try out and let us know what you think. Our scheduling tool allows principals to quickly create a school schedule, overlay resources such as special education, English Language Learner supports and paraprofessionals. We also have resources such as a lesson plan template, a school leadership agenda and forms that get your system organized and transformed into learning environments.
Schools Cubed is not based on the latest educational trend. We are about educational research and the implications and feasible implementation of that research into schools. We create systems of learning, often in schools that have struggled the most. We offer professional development for school leaders and teachers. Our PD for principals creates systems that get schools moving in the right direction on day one. Check out the description for “Off and Running,” professional development designed for school leaders that ensures students don’t wait for weeks before receiving intervention services. Schools Cubed recognizes that professional development alone does not create instructional leaders. Along with our professional development that increases efficient school systems, we offer principal coaching and mentoring, working side-by-side building leaders as they create forward moving schools.
We offer professional development in various content areas that ensures teaching is focused on the Common Core. In literacy, we take teachers from the foundational standards of the CCSS at the elementary level to content literacy at the secondary level. We provide teacher coaching as well, using a gradual release model to ensure teachers have mastered these research-based instructional strategies.
