Why We Exist

Attuned’s team of practitioners builds the capacity of PK-12 organizations to prioritize, tailor, and implement a diverse set of practices that drive educational equity and excellence. 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.

"Most people who are in this work throw their heart and soul into it. A rare few go to the lengths that Attuned does in also committing to shared outcomes. They model integrity, are resilient, and their belief in the potential of children and of the educators who have committed to this work knows no bounds."
