Abstract: ASSIST, an acronym for Achieving Success through School Improvement Site Teams, is grounded in the premise that professional development and support provided to a school leadership team comprised of a nucleus of teacher-leaders and the principal can translate into school-wide improvement. The conceptual design of ASSIST is based upon two “frameworks” for comprehensive, systemic school improvement. The first is a “student-centered, content” framework that includes the major components of school culture, school climate, pedagogy, leadership, and organizational structure. The second is a “vision-driven, change process” framework that includes defining faculty values/beliefs/commitments, designing a school vision with goals and strategies for accomplishing the vision, and utilizing data to inform the goals and progress toward the goals.
