Theory of Change for a Successful School Improvement Partnership

December 2020

Developed by the District and School Improvement Cross-REL Working Group, this infographic outlines a theory of change for building an effective school improvement partnership. Such partnerships can thrive given three sets of favorable conditions that support successful engagement:

  • Six key qualities in the support provided
  • A set of shared beliefs and a sense of collective efficacy across partners
  • The presence of adequate resources and a supportive policy environment

Trust and shared accountability between partners are foundational elements that contribute to success and are built over time under these conditions.
