  • Leadership – creating purpose and relational trust that engage staff and students
  • Collaboration – practices that involve staff in action research to improve teaching and learning
  • Support system – integrated support system for behavior, achievement, and social emotional needs
  • Data – evidence-based processes that monitor and connect staff and students to a system of supports
