About Office of School Transformation
CREC's Office of School Transformation provides advanced support and professional development services in four research-based transformational areas — vision, instructional core, human capital, and infrastructure. School climate, family, and community engagement are integral to school transformation and encompass the core transformational areas. Sustainable school transformation demands a commitment to data review, strategic planning, aggressive intervention, and ongoing evaluation. CREC provides guidance and support at every phase of transformational change and builds local capacity for continuous improvement, monitoring and adjustment, and scaling-up of programs with demonstrated success.
