Professional Learning is the Cornerstone

Lasting school improvement requires planning. Communication. Execution. But without high-quality professional development, everything else is harder...if not impossible.  SES SmartPL has you covered!


Led by nationally-recognized administrator Katherine Holden, SES SmartPL partners with you and your staff every step of the way to make Proficiency Based Scoring and Reporting (PBSR) a lasting success.

Have you:

Worked with your staff to identify your "Why" behind proficiency scoring?

Generated milestones for a 3-4 year plan to ensure a smooth rollout and avoid overwhelming everyone?

Outlined the scope and requirements for your rubrics, including criteria to create only high-quality rubrics?

Identified the potholes and obstacles particular to your school and staff (and how to address them)?

Proactively coordinated with your superintendent and/or school board?

Created a communication plan for your parents and community?

Why can SES SmartPL help? Because we've been here before! We know how to move from a traditional system of "points and percentages" into a learning culture where students are more engaged, parents are true partners, and the criteria for success in any subject is transparent and clear to everyone.
