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) was creating powerful learning cultures in the elementary schools. An Institute in June and a yearlong program  supported 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. Critical in driving this transformational work are thoughtful, focused planning; rich professional understanding about school culture, teaching and learning; and a belief that students’, parents’, and teachers’ voices are critical.

The second year (2017-18) will make three low performing schools the primary focus.  Each school a) is assigned a transformational coach who will meet monthly with the school’s leadership team, b) will attend a monthly day-long transformational team training session, and c) will participate in a 3-day retreat early in the term to clarify plans for their school.

District-wide activities during the 2017-2018 include the following:

  • Coaching for Transformation and consultation with Elena Aguilar
  • 9-hour seminar on transformational change
  • routine meetings with central office leaders on transformational coaching.

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