Strategic Planning for Curriculum Implementation

Guided Strategic Planning that leads to actionable next steps to improve
instruction and raise student achievement

Strategic Planning with BetterLesson

Say goodbye to complex, time-consuming strategic planning. Our streamlined approach simplifies the process, giving you more time to focus on successful implementation and continuous improvement.

In a curriculum adoption, strategic planning, thoughtful execution of the plan, and ongoing refinement of the plan is vital to successful and sustained implementation of the newly adopted curriculum. The ultimate goal of the BetterLesson Strategic Planning process is to create and implement an adoption plan that articulates support for curriculum implementation, improves student achievement and is flexible enough to be refined and adjusted based on teaching and learning data. 

BetterLesson empowers district and school leaders with the support they need for efficient and effective Strategic Planning. We bring a wealth of expertise to guide our district partners in thoughtfully developing and implementing strategic action plans.
