In 2017, SDP teams worked with one of three track partners.

  • Time Track, led by Sensible Innovation: School teams designed and implemented new master schedules to organize their talent, time, technology and space to help serve all students in their schools.
  • Talent Track, led by National SAM Innovations Project (NSIP): Principals implemented the celebrated SAM Process, including the TimeTrack and First Responder systems, to help principals decrease their time spent on operational tasks and spend time where it really matters: in classrooms, with students.
  • Culture & Climate Track, led by UChicago Impact: Leadership teams focused on improving their school’s culture and climate (measured via the 5Essentials) with regular job-embedded coaching, small-group collaboratives and innovative tools and techniques.
