Re-Inventing Schools Coalition… where the forgotten voice of learning is heard.

We transform K-12 education to produce dramatically improved learning environments and achievement results for all students.

We coach teachers, students, parents and community members to design and implement your unique Personal Mastery system–a Competency-Based education system.

We help shift the paradigm of education from a time-driven system to a competency-based framework where students own their learning and have a voice.

We all went to the cafeteria and we all got big ideas and put it on sticky notes and then we saw which ones were the most important. It was fun because WE got to decide what went on the Shared Vision, 3rd Grader, Hunley Park Elementary, Charleston, SC.

Upcoming Webinar!

Join Robert J. Marzano of Marzano Research and Rick M. Schreiber, co-founder of Re-Inventing Schools Coalition for a webinar outlining the basics of competency-based education and relating examples and experiences of schools who have implemented competency-based systems.

We have the tools and processes to help all levels of your organization— from students to administrators to parents— our multiple services help schools and districts to create  competency-based education; what we call Personal Mastery systems.

We provide on-site training and support for your district, schools and classrooms. We offer distance services to support our on-site work.

The strength of this program is the way it is designed to meet each learners needs. It is a great model for what we want our teaching to look like. ~ Participant in Greg Johnson’s online course: Creating a Personal Mastery Classroom
