Our approach to leadership development is strategically aligned to what is needed to improve the outcomes of students in your system. We start by analyzing your current student achievement results and desired outcomes to identify what the school leader should know and be able to do to be successful. Then we collaborate with the leader to design a professional learning and support plan to ensure they master the leadership principles and core practices and align them to achieve the goals outlined in their comprehensive school or district improvement plan.


Research clearly indicates that professional development is most effective when it is embedded within leaders’ day‐to‐day responsibilities and ongoing with frequent opportunities for coaching and practice. Instructional leadership is a core component for successfully transforming low performing schools.


We work with central office leadership and the school principal to prioritize their student achievement goals, aligning mandates, available resources and supports through real time job embedded professional learning opportunities and instructional leadership coaching.

We prioritize including pertinent research and case studies from educational reform thought leaders.

CSAS Instructional Leadership Development Coaching Prepares School Principals To:

  • Easily identify early wins to increase staff motivation and buy in.
  • Implement evidenced-based instructional strategies school-wide.
  • Communicate a clear, positive and focused vision about student achievement to create a sense of urgency and need for change.
  • Analyze assessment results to respond or readjust instruction to meet the unique needs of all students.
  • Effectively communicate and collaborate with teachers based on a structured approach to track real time student assessment results to ensure they can engage with the instructional challenges to plan and readjust instruction.
  • Develop a highly effective leadership team to implement, monitor, and sustain research validated instructional and intervention strategies.
  • Communicate and celebrate school transformation progress in a timely manner.

Learning From Leadership

Louis, Wahlstrom, & Anderson, 2010

In Learning From Leadership (Louis, Wahlstrom, & Anderson, 2010), the largest study to date looking at the effect of leadership on student achievement, researchers found that next to teaching, leadership is the most important influence on student learning.  

Center for Student Solution Achievement ( CSAS) has been a strategic partner with my school this year. CSAS provided professional consultants that provided non-evaluative coaching to my teachers weekly; which resulted in an increase in our student achievement for both ELA and Math state percentages. The foundational practices CSAS focused on, strengthen our instructional strategies around our core and intervention programming. As a second year principal, I appreciated the laser focused implementation CSAS provided to create the momentum for future years of success.

Center For Student Achievement Solutions name says it all. Over the past two years, we have been fortunate to work with Dr. Chandra Williams and her team of consultants to develop and implement strategies utilizing the RtI Framework. Understanding that "Data Tells The Story" the plan of attack and "solution" to address our scholar's deficit skills has been prescriptive and systemic.

All that Center For Student Achievement Solutions has been able to do to assist our efforts in closing the achievement gap is evidenced in our increased scores in reading assessments. With a modeling and coaching professional development approach, not only have our scholars benefited but also our entire teaching and support staff teams. Center for Student Achievement Solutions name says it ALL... An educational center with a solution mind-set to ensure ALL students achieve.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Williams and her consultants during the 2016-2017 They brought a wealth of knowledge to our classrooms and her team assisted in teaching our teachers and leaders to guarantee we pushed academics within our school. Her team provided us with the skills needed to ensure our students received instruction aligned with the common core, NWEA and end of year assessments.

All our teachers and students experienced growth in phonics, reading and mathematics while Dr. Williams and her consultants provided their services. The math and ELA consultants both provided differentiated, standards aligned tools and tips which will be in place at our building for years to come.
