With the support of the W.K Kellogg Foundation, Partners initiated groundwork in 2012-13 in two Mississippi school districts- Sunflower County and Indianola. The early work of our District Transformation Review and School Transformation Review highlighted a need to focus on literacy instruction.

In the 2013-14 school year, Carver Elementary improved substantially in several capacity areas across the School Transformation Rubric (STR), the greatest increase seen in Professional Development in Partners’ history.

For more information about working with Partners in the Midwest, please contact William Hill at 888.315.1489 or send us an email.



The timing is right for integrating the Partners approach for supporting teachers and leaders as a way of strengthening our efforts to meet our community goals for our children.
