There are several important issues to consider when establishing a partnership with an external provider to improve teaching and learning. It is important to carefully select a provider who will support your work in addressing the root cause of your primary needs through the use of evidence-based strategies. Equally important is that the provider has evidence of impacting this primary need in similar school contexts which resulted in improved student outcomes. Below are two documents which will support your efforts in selecting and working with external providers.

Guide to Working With External Providers – The 4th edition from the District & School Improvement Center at American Institutes for Research supports schools and LEAs by providing the necessary tools to ensure successful partnerships that lead to improved teaching and learning.
