To ensure that each of the new partner schools is a long-term success, ISA provides principals and teachers ongoing guidance and implementation support throughout the school year.  Additionally, each school has an ISA coach -- an experienced school leader with expertise in school development, curriculum and instruction - who is on-site one day per week to support the school team as it implements the ISA Seven Principles.  ISA's strength as a partner is also bolstered by its relationship with the National Center for Restructuring Education, Schools, & Teaching (NCREST), Teachers College, Columbia University, which provides student performance and program implementation data to schools to support their continuous organizational improvement.
