BRYN MAWR, PA: CITRS has announced the roll out of the CITRS GROW Model, an effective Continuous School Improvement Model which focuses on helping America’s struggling schools to thrive, not just survive. While other education providers have programs and initiatives that are targeted at students, the CITRS GROW Model focuses first on supporting the adults in the schools, including all faculty, staff, and administrators. CITRS believes that a school is only as successful and healthy as the strength of its team.
The ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on educators’ energy and enthusiasm will continue to be felt in this school year and beyond. “We recognize, more than ever, the increasing demands that schools and staffs have had in the last year and a half. Ideally, schools should be filled with educators who have fallen in love with teaching again and know they are supported in their efforts,” stated Melissa Nunez, Chief Operating Officer of CITRS.
The four-phased GROW model is not “one size fits all”. Rather, CITRS recognizes that every school has its own unique problems preventing their success. This proven data-based consulting approach is unique. Central to the model is the internationally recognized team of highly qualified education specialists, administrators, counselors, psychologists, and researchers who provide one-on-one, on-the-ground support and facilitation of this multi-dimensional, evidence-driven process that helps turn around even the most challenged schools.
The CITRS GROW Model is developed in conjunction with internationally renowned research experts Multi-Dimensional Education, Inc. It is built on two decades of research and uses validated measurement tools to assess the dimensions most predictive of educational success. This data serves as a guide to inform on-going continuous school improvement efforts led by schools’ teams that are guided and facilitated by the CITRS GROW team.
