Through four practice areas – District and Systems Transformation, Community Organizing and Engagement, Research and Policy, and Strategic Communications – AISR staff help districts, communities, and their partners join forces and establish sustainable systems that ensure excellence, equity, and social justice for all students, especially in high-poverty communities.

Rather than providing a specific reform design or model to be implemented, AISR’s approach is to offer a wide range of expertise along with an array of tools and strategies to help districts and communities strengthen their capacity to provide and sustain high-quality education for all students.
