What We Do
Learning Point Associates applies research and evaluation, direct professional services, and policy knowledge to create change at every level of the education system—classroom, school, district, state and national.
We are known nationally for our leadership in these areas:
Afterschool Services—We evaluate afterschool programs and serve as a repository of both proven and promising practice. Our staff works directly with program administrators and their funders to coach teachers, strengthen programming, monitor success, and recommend state and national policies.
Literacy—We work at the school and district level to develop literacy curriculum and coaching strategies for teachers and staff on improving literacy. At the state level, our initiatives help education agencies develop policies designed to boost literacy among middle school and high school students.
District and School Improvement—Our work allows leaders at the highest levels, in states, districts, and schools, to make better choices regarding curriculum, instruction, staffing and student services. Our clients know their schools, their situation and their people. They know which reform efforts have failed to gain traction and which strategies have led to successes. We understand how to take their knowledge, combine it with tested tools, extensive experience and content expertise and together clear the path for change. Our respectful partnership with the district team yields the commitment that positions the district for success.
