The Ferguson-Florissant Transformation Project is a partnership among three key entities: The Ferguson-Florissant School District, Washington University’s Institute for School Partnership, and the Santa Fe Center for Transformational School Leadership. Together they are engaged in an intensive three-year process to move forward the transformation of the school district, building on its strengths toward a consistently vibrant, highly successful learning environment for children and adults. Their aim is to work with school principals, teachers, students, and parents to create a school district that can serve as a clear center for the community to unite in service to the District’s children.

The first year’s focus (2016-17) is creating powerful learning cultures in the elementary schools. An Institute in June and a yearlong program is supporting principals and teacher leaders in building their capacity for learning, nurturing high quality teaching, and leading for transformation.

The passionate commitment to the success of Ferguson-Florissant is shared by the leadership of all three organizations. Thoughtful, focused planning; rich professional understanding about school culture, teaching and learning; and a belief that students’, parents’, and teachers’ voices are critical to school transformation all drive the work.

Made possible by the Public School Support Fund of the St. Louis Community Foundation.
