Service Details

Our WestEd team provides technical assistance to secondary and postsecondary schools and educators in a variety of areas:

  • Interpreting and using data to improve student success
  • Implementing reforms with fidelity to the model being used
  • Understanding best practices
  • Analyzing strengths and challenges related to policy and practice

For example, WestEd staff worked with Professional Learning Councils (intersegmental, discipline-specific) as part of the Woodrow Wilson Early College High School network.

Staff also worked on the Bridge to Success Summer Program, where secondary and postsecondary faculty examined student-level data to inform decisions about curricula, teaching practices, instructional materials, and/or performance measures.

Our technical assistance also includes collaborating with larger groups through meetings, presentations, and tools that help educators, administrators, and policymakers interpret and use research on specific topics of interest.

For Completion by Design, we run the initiative’s Knowledge Center where we provide technical assistance to colleges on developing and implementing reforms.

Cost

Cost varies based on the specific work to be carried out.
