What is School by Design?

School by Design is a comprehensive resource design platform that allows you to see the current state of your school and to try on new ideas—risk-free.
School by Design - Audit


How are your schools using
time and people right now?

Our specialized resource audit allows you to see how money, staffing and time decisions impact teaching and learning.

We give you an aggregate view of teacher time, student time, equity, class size and more for each school in your district.

How can you reimagine your district
& schools within current constraints?

Our scenario planning tools let you visualize different ways your resources could be deployed to create a school experience that enriches students and supports your staff.
School by Design - Plan


Our strategic planning process helps you
achieve your vision, no matter how bold.

Want to pursue specific instructional priorities like increased teacher co-planning, or completely redesign your school to include flexible schedules and more personalized instruction?

What if you can’t solve your real problems because you can’t see them?
