Why We Exist
Attuned builds the capacity of PK-12 organizations to drive educational equity and excellence for underserved students. Our team of practitioners partners with school systems to prioritize, tailor, and implement a diverse set of proven practices. We blend rigor and empathy, planning and implementation, district and charter expertise, and aspirations of quality and scale.
Too many schools and school systems never fulfill their potential. PK-12 leaders often lack the time to prioritize and plan, don’t have access to effective tools and strategies, and are presented with false choices — districts or charter schools, traditional or progressive pedagogy, rigorous academics or social-emotional support. Meanwhile, kids living in poverty, children of color, and other PK-12 students continue to be shortchanged.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
As former teachers, principals, and system leaders from some of the nation’s most effective districts and charter school organizations, we understand—firsthand—that the work is difficult, but that extraordinary public school outcomes are possible. We don’t subscribe to extremes or one-size-fits-all approaches. Instead, we identify and synthesize effective practices from a diverse set of proven models, and we help our partner organizations tailor and integrate solutions that make sense for their contexts—blending rigor and empathy, planning and implementation, district and charter expertise, and aspirations of quality and scale.
