Postsecondary

Leadership Network

As postsecondary enrollment rates continue to drop across the country, systems leaders are grappling with how to equitably support students and increase college and career readiness in their communities. The compounding financial, academic, and social barriers that many of their students confront in today’s evolving economy requires us to think differently about what postsecondary planning should look like in our schools and across our districts.

Building on the success we’ve had working with students, educators and system leaders for nearly 15 years, OneGoal created a professional learning network developed specifically for school and district leaders where you’ll be able to collaborate with peers and receive one-on-one coaching from experts who have been in your shoes.

We collaborate to identify and offer equitable, flexible, and data-driven leadership coaching customized to your district’s context. Together, we create an actionable plan aimed at bringing your vision of increased postsecondary opportunities for students to life.

Our Postsecondary Leadership Newtwork comprises three elements that connect districts with the continuous partnership, community and tools to execute successful district-level plans.
