OUR Education Network is an international network created to help schools be the best they can be.
We link people involved in creating the best learning environments for children, educators, and families.
We are welcoming, we are open, and we want others to join us.
For those who are already members, here are spaces to share what we have learned and will learn together.
Unfamiliar with OUR Network? Welcome! This site will give you the opportunity to get to know us.
We believe that much of what is needed in any school already is there, it's only a matter of extracting the best ideas. These form the foundation for a clear vision of the school to strive to realize.
Based on staff feedback, impact on student achievement, costs, training needs, and the time demands of various tasks, we create a long-term plan that is achievable within the reality of balanced lives for both staff and families.
Implementing change takes time. We work together with the school for years to continuously improve and fine-tune the use of OUR Processes so that they are embedded deeply in the everyday life of school.
Ongoing contact with the Network is maintained through the Graduate Program. This provides ongoing networking and coaching, as well as access to the other perks of being a member.
Reasons to Join Us
Each year for the first three years, two facilitators will work closely with the school leadership to help design the change processes and implement each phase of the program.
OUR facilitators are personal coaches for the principal/headmaster for three years. This coaching is done in a style, and pace, that best suit each school leader.
Discuss and learn together with others of the OUR Education Network.
