Overview


Lead the charge in learning

Change-makers, unite!

The Schlechty Center is a private, non-profit organization committed to partnering with education leaders who are interested in nurturing a culture of engagement in their organizations, with the ultimate goal of increasing profound learning for all students. We also bring change-makers together in collaborative networks in order to provide support to them as they undertake the hard work of transforming their classrooms, schools, and school districts. While many organizations are focused on measuring engagement, we are focused on the “how” of designing work—work that not only engages students in learning but also invigorates staff and gets teachers excited about teaching. That’s the sweet spot. And that’s the heart of everything we do at the Schlechty Center. 

This is about more than collaboration; this is a revolution. And it's time to join us. It's time to lead the charge.

Networks for Leadership Development

Our networks are vibrant learning communities that give you full access to our premium resources as well as support from peers who are also leading the charge to transform their schools and school districts. Our signature networks are the Superintendents Leadership Network, the Principals Leadership Network, and the Standard-Bearer School District Network. We also have customized networks for different regions of the country.  

Transformative Professional Learning

Each school and classroom is as unique as the community it serves. All of our work with school districts and staff includes custom consultation, coaching, and facilitation to address issues particular to a specific context. Our professional learning opportunities can be facilitated in your school district, in a conference setting, or online.  

Partnerships

The Schlechty Center has strategic partnerships with organizations across the country, such as the Texas Association of School Administrators and the Professional Association of Georgia Educators, who share a common mission to support engagement-focused schools and classrooms.

Legacy


A legacy of learning

It began with one man and became a movement.

Our founder, Phil Schlechty, was a leader, a leader who faced the challenges of public education head on. For decades, he fought in the trenches with educators working to save public education. Thirty years ago, Phil launched the Schlechty Center to transform learning experiences. The Schlechty Center allowed him to scale and amplify the impact of his efforts by defining a philosophy and frameworks that change-makers everywhere could adopt and use to impact their own communities. Schlechty Center senior associates continue to shape those frameworks by learning with and from clients across the country.
