GLISI conducts rigorous research and evaluation to equip leaders with the knowledge and information they need to address their most pressing education challenges. We accomplish this by applying our research findings to the design and delivery of our consulting and leadership development work. We also offer a wide range of research-based services to school districts and our other partners, including process audits, organizational assessments, and program evaluations. Learn more about our research services, publications, and projects below.
Conditions for Success (CFS) Overview
GLISI’s Conditions for Success (CFS) studies are case studies aimed at identifying those district leadership practices and conditions – characteristics, practices, leadership behaviors and support – that interact with GLISI partnership to most powerfully influence outcomes for traditionally underperforming student groups. Particularly, the study focuses on how district leaders who participated in GLISI’s team-based leadership development program influenced or created conditions under which notable achievement gains were achieved. It is GLISI’s hope that through each Conditions For Success study, district leaders facing similar circumstances can use the lessons learned through this study to create the conditions school leaders need to support teachers in their efforts to improve instruction, leading to improved student learning.
Research Brief Series (RBS) Overview
GLISI’s Research Brief Series is a publication designed to help busy school and district leaders learn more about trending topics in K-12 education leadership. By focusing on issues that matter and presenting the information in an accessible format, this biannual publication is one more step toward helping educators boost their leadership capacity and improve their practice.
