The principals and education consultants at SPS have experience working with a wide range of districts and schools as measured by student population, socio-economic and ethnic/racial diversity, and financial complexity, having worked with school district budgets that reach $1.5 billion. Individual intervention projects undertaken by SPS have ranged from under $1 million to $5 million.
In order to address specific needs of individual clients, SPS selects and trains education consultants, regional center consultants, and district and school personnel to undertake performance improvement projects.
SPS strives to maintain a close alignment with clients, including local superintendents, principals, teachers, university professors and administrators, chief state school officers, and even a Minister of Education to ensure full and appropriate adherence to local practices and a tailoring of intervention projects to meet specific concerns. As needed, SPS will recruit and include local professionals on its project teams.
