About Teaching & Learning
For 50 years, CREC has supported school districts to increase student achievement for all learners. The key initiatives and consulting services provided by CREC originate from three guiding principles about system growth:
- A powerful learning system ensures each learner’s success as measured by valid and reliable evidence.
- A powerful learning system proves itself when everyone within the system performs better because of their collective endeavors and accepts accountability for results.
- Leaders in a powerful learning system inspire each individual’s contributions by creating, nurturing, and protecting the conditions for success.
Education specialists provide highly personalized and specialized professional development to local educators. Such ongoing collegial efforts to strengthen teaching and learning reinforce the vitality of the region as a professional learning community that is committed to results.
