Program Reviews

Experts from the Center for Professional Learning at Gateways can administer a comprehensive review of a Jewish educational program's policies and practices related to inclusion and pegged to 48 standards of best practice. The review is intended as an essential component of a school's cycle of continuous improvement by pinpointing strengths and areas for improvement. From this assessment, school leaders and educators can then develop the clear-eyed vision and the strategic design to extend its own brand of educational excellence to ever more Jewish students.
