Discover Your School’s DNA with the 
Multi-Dimensional Needs As
(MDNA) & Evaluation

We Deliver a Holistic View

As the process model to follow illustrates, the Multi-Dimensional Education approach to K12 provides you with a more comprehensive understanding of the systemic efforts of your school. The best approaches to education, we have been a part of, researched, or observed, approach success via a more holistic system that has many parts. The many parts or multiple dimensions are what we feel represents your schools’ DNA, and our MDNA provides a systemic evaluation of what is working, not working, and why.

Empowering You with a Continuous Improvement Process

It is the sum of these parts that create the synergy needed to help students and teachers succeed. A few of these parts you have more control over than others. While other parts (e.g., finance) you might have little control over. But the sum of the parts creates the synergy needed to generate the energy to improve. And by more accurately monitoring the functionality of the more meaningful dimensions predictive of your outcomes, and more closely assessing the positive or negative impact they are having, the better chance you have of offsetting the possible negative impact and increasing your chances for success.

Reframing & Refining Your Focus

Our MDNA and other assessment tools have been used in more than 25 states and 100 districts. We have worked with many school level and district educators. Our Multi-Dimensional Needs Assessment can provide you with the assessment, support, and training needed to not only identify your strengths and challenges, but also provide insights as to which facets within your schools are contributing to or detracting from academic achievement and social wellbeing. By helping you connect the gears which are the force behind improving climate, instruction and mindsets, this is how we help schools make a measurable difference in the lives of their kids, families, and educators.

As our Multi-Dimensional Education book with Corwin documents, and our process model to follow highlights, our continuous improvement process focuses on eight dimensions of education that have been linked to highly effective schools through more than 50 years of research.
