Partners in School Innovation (Partners) is a national education reform non-profit headquartered in San Francisco, United States, whose aim is to improve education standards in the lowest-performing public schools by developing the capacity of teachers and education leaders to engage in self-reflective Results-Oriented Cycles of Inquiry (ROCI), a proprietary adaptation of continuous improvement methodology for public school districts.[clarification needed]
Partners in School Innovation was founded in 1993, with the aim of eliminating the racial achievement gap in public education. It was co-founded by Julien Phillips, a former Peace Corps Volunteer and McKinsey & Co. partner, and Kim Grose, a Rhodes scholar and social justice advocate. They began a model to create systemic improvements in low-performing schools with the support of AmeriCorps members, or "Partners".
Partners in School Innovation (Partners) works with urban school districts to improve education standards for African American, Latino and English learner students in low-income communities. Since it was established, Partners has worked alongside educators in more than 80 public schools and 15 districts. In 2012, the organization began work in Battle Creek, Michigan with the support of a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Since then, Partners has spread its model to Grand Rapids, Michigan, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the Mississippi Delta, while continuing work across three districts in California.
