“Our partnership with CREC has been a tremendous asset in our work to develop a sustainable process in data-driven decision making at both the grade level and building level. The consultant's expertise, patience, accessibility, and flexibility made for a relatively smooth transition in making this critical work part of our staff's weekly practice.”
