Course Description

The TSI Network is an initiative aimed at closing specific and persistent achievement gaps in Maryland TSI schools through a focused Community of Practice. Using Improvement Science as a framework, the TSI Support Network is designed to provide cross-school and cross-district learning tailored to the context-specific needs of TSI schools and the local school systems supporting them. The Network begins with a needs-based survey for all school teams to reflect on their needs and goals for joining the Network. TSI schools will refine, implement, and measure their improvements, identify problems and root causes, goals, and drivers, and build continuous improvement mindsets. Schools will also work in small groups to create a plan for student subgroup performance based on their TSI identified need area.


Access to online forums, webinars, a resource hub, and research and practice expertise from university faculty and other content specialists in the field. For local school systems, the TSI Support Network will provide a one-on-one consultation to support their school improvement work.
