Leadership Network

As postsecondary enrollment rates continue to drop across the country, systems leaders are grappling with how to close equity gaps by increasing college and career opportunities for students. Building on the success we’ve had working with students, educators, and system leaders for 15 years, OneGoal created a leadership network developed specifically for school and district leaders.

Together, we can reimagine postsecondary leadership in your district—and take outcomes to the next level. Join a supportive community of experts and peers. Assess your district’s readiness. Define a path to high-impact improvements that’s tailored to your needs. And move forward with expert guidance—every step of the way. The end result is system-level improvements that lead to better student outcomes.

How does this fit into my district’s strategic plan?


We are not here to create new work for you. Rather, our team helps leaders organize, strengthen, and create coherence across their existing postsecondary readiness work. Our coaching team of former school and district leaders has sat in your seat and know how to provide thought partnership and collaboration to help focus and elevate your work.

What district and school level roles are typically part of this work?


Typically, we work with principals, assistant principals, counselors and district level leaders such as Assistant Superintendents, Executive Directors/Directors of Secondary or Student Services.

What are the time commitments?


We generally ask teams for a commitment of approximately four hours per month to meet with our coaching team and another 2-3 hours every other month to participate in our cross-district communities of practice spaces. Zoom fatigue is real and so our team is committed to showing up in person to ~50% of touchpoints.
