G.E.T.S. R.E.S.U.L.T.S. Model
For Charter Management
Together with dedicated educators, NAEP strives to guide and support educators and educator teams towards student centered-institution and universal high achievement in all schools by using its educational service support methodology, Global Educational Transformation System (G.E.T.S.): R.E.S.U.L.T.S. model. This model aligns to the seven indicators of an effective school as evidenced by educational frameworks time and time again. The descriptions below outline the full suite of this school support and management model and define the key targets within a NAEP-managed and operated school:
- Leaders and teachers understand the importance of data in the instructional decision-making process, making data analysis and action part of a regular routine and cycle
- Leaders and teachers are able to appropriately utilize the data points available within the school and understand how to analyze those data points
- Leaders and teachers understand the range of action that may be required as a result of the detailed analysis of student data and can implement appropriate instructional adjustments based on specific student needs as determined by data
- Leaders and teachers are able to structure venues for student support that go beyond the regular hours of a school day and allow students the opportunity to close achievement gaps or enrich their current academic levels
- The curriculum within a school delineates clear pacing of content that meets state, LEA and charter requirements
- Curriculum and lesson resources are collaboratively developed by NAEP’s Academic Division, school leaders and teachers which are designed based on specific student needs and curriculum objectives
- An assessment process is implemented at the school site and strategically integrates diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments to guide and structure the design and delivery of instruction
- Assessments guide each unit and are formulated so that what is designed to be taught, is taught and then in turn appropriately assessed to determine if it was learned
- All stakeholders within the school, inclusive of leaders, teachers, students, parents, the community and beyond, all work collaboratively towards a clear set of school objectives
- The relationships and connections among school stakeholders serve as a facilitator of positive outcomes and foster collaboration, creating an environment where all parties contribute to an outcomes greater than the sum of everyone’s individual capacity
- Leaders and teachers are empowered and lead and instruct with both emotional and cultural intelligence to ensure that the needs of a diverse student population in the 21st century are addressed fully and precisely
- Leaders are trained in and can effectively implement the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards’ Nine Accomplished Principal Standards: Leading by Results and Design; Developing a Vision and School Mission; Leading Teaching, Learning, and Accountability; Knowing Stakeholders; Building a Culture of Learning; Leading Strategically; Marketing the School; Demanding Ethical Behavior; and Engaging in Professional Learning and Self-Reflection
- Leaders are adept instructional leaders, not just managers, and are able to provide high quality coaching, feedback and support to all school staff
- Teachers are able to effectively implement all three elements of Richard Elmore’s Instructional Core by doing the following:
- Ensuring rigorous levels of content for students by actively designing lessons that have targeted learning experiences and struggle points for students and not just standards and objectives
- Increasing their own skill & knowledge (i.e. methodology) through training and support in the latest best-practice pedagogy
- Increase the level of students’ active learning (engagement) of the content by planning and delivering instruction in a way that aligns to student interests, scaffolding material that is difficult for students to grasp and enriching lessons in which students already grasp material
- Leaders and teachers regularly engage in collaborative planning and discussions that address students’ psychological, emotional and cultural needs to continuously improve student services
- Leaders and teachers understand the cultural and generational makeup of their students so that school curriculum, activities and other elements are designed in a way that appeal to each school’s student population

Leadership Development and Support
NAEP provides training for principals, assistant principals, instructional coaches to support them in their efforts to lead instruction in the School. Participants will acquire the knowledge and develop the skill sets and capacity to lead instructional enhancement efforts that improve student outcomes through their ability to implement professional development, monitor outcomes and strategically allocate teacher support. NAEP, as the chosen Educational Support Professionals (ESP), will ensure that leaders gain a clear understanding of their state standards design for specific standards so that they can understand the classroom dynamic and teacher expectation shift, per standard. Leader participants will understand that classrooms are places where students access the world (science, social studies, math, the arts, and literature) through student content exploration and peer-to-peer collaboration as opposed to the old fashioned mechanism of teacher stand and deliver whereas the students sit and get. Leader participants will engage in both literacy using Anchor Standards, ELA spot light standards, ELA supporting standards, Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP), Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Standards (MTRs) and will have the opportunity to receive concept training side-to-side with their peers and one-on-one coaching that will enable direct feedback.
Teacher Leader Development and Support
To support school leadership in the implementation of an efficient and sustained, high-quality instructional program, NAEP will train Teacher Leaders (also known as Department Heads or Department Chairperson) to drive instruction for their respective departments. When positioned and trained effectively, teacher leaders can assist with the implementation and sustainability of key capacity-building initiatives. NAEP will use the three-tiered capacity development methodology to train the selected teacher leaders in the roles defined by the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), whereas each role is a separate module:
- Resource Provider
- Instructional Specialist
- Curriculum Specialist
- Classroom Supporter
- Learning Facilitator
- School Leader
- Data Coach
- Catalyst for Change
Teacher Development and Support
NAEP’s school-based teacher development program addresses technical and/or adaptive skill enhancements, targeting teacher acquisition of your state standards-aligned with the instructional practices. These will focus on Mathematics and ELA with an in-depth understanding of student learning sequences and required skills in order to catalyze and sustain results sought out by the School. The content-area and targeted strategies are predominantly tailored to Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) instruction, which constitutes the primary focus for determining the majority of the school grade.The expected outcomes for the implementation of the PD process for teachers are based on the implementation of the Instructional Core and will be adjusted each year based on student performance. Math training will focus on either of the two Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMPs) or Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Standards (MTRs) and will empower teachers to not only implement the practice of either standard in the elements of the core but will also guide teachers as to the connections between the SMPs and MTRs through specific math content concepts. ELA training will focus on Common Core Reading and Writing Anchor Standards and will outline the shift in instruction required as well as specific strategies and techniques that are relevant to each anchor standard (i.e. guided highlighting, text annotation, and search and destroy for Reading Anchor Standard One).
