Four Pillars of Transformation

Our Foundation for Success

Built on four pillars of school success, Talent Development Secondary becomes a solid partner in districts, schools and classrooms. On-site staff provides consistent help in implementing the schedule, curriculum and instruction that will make a difference in how students learn and how teachers teach. Professional development is continual, consistent and specific to the needs of each school and its staff.

Pillar I: Teacher Teams and Small Learning Communities

Teams of teachers working with a common and manageable set of students, with time built into their schedule for collaborative work and receive initial facilitation to guide their efforts. Read more.

Pillar II: Specialized Curriculum and Coaching

Instructional materials that use evidence based practice to close student skills gaps and build their advanced thinking skills linked with on-site embedded professional development via instructional coaches and professional learning communities. Read more.

Pillar III: Tiered Student Supports

A data guided, tiered student support system that uses early warning indicators and an integrated system of whole school, targeted and intensive supports to get the right intervention, to the right student, at the right time at the scale and intensity required (along with rapid recovery options when this does not work). Read more.

Pillar IV: Can-Do Climate for Students and Staff

Create a productive, consistent, and supportive school environment that provides clear pathways to school success and college and career readiness in a manner that is comprehensible to students,  builds on their interests, develops their strengths and ignites their passions and establishes and enables a Can do Culture among the school staff.
