District improvement planning services

Leadership Team Services (LTS) can help your district plan more systematically, integrate board goals with site-based improvement planning, and move from plan development to measuring results for real improvement. Services and time frames are customized to meet a district's specific needs. To learn more about our planning services, contact lts@tasb.org or call us at 800.580.8272, extension 2452.
