Public sector

States and districts are under more pressure than ever to accelerate outcomes for under-served students. State education agencies are faced with a profound shift in their role, as they move from compliance and monitoring agencies to entities that actively shape the K-12 landscape and must support and hold accountable local school districts. States and school districts are also facing new requirements around teacher evaluation, finance, pension challenges, and exciting but complicated opportunities to expand personalized learning, build better human capital pipelines, and introduce portfolio approaches to managing schools to increase customization for students.

Our team is strongly positioned to help public sector organizations not only meet these challenges but also improve dramatically while doing so. Our team of former teachers, school district staff, state and federal staff members, and foundation executives has a deep and multi-faceted understanding of the issues that public sector organizations face.

Bellwether works throughout the country with districts and states of all sizes to tackle these critical challenges and opportunities. We support comprehensive strategic planning efforts, financial analysis, initiative design and implementation, regulation development, policy evaluation and analysis, and grant writing.
