Alice Lai, K-12 Scheduling Solutions Director
"SSI helped us understand how we could leverage the schedule as an instructional tool to help the high school and the district as a whole deliver more for our students. Far from being an administrative chore, scheduling has the power to effect improvements. We are excited about the opportunities the process uncovered to reduce travel time and improve equity between two buildings, and are looking forward to implementing schedule changes for the benefits of all of our students".
- Justin Reese, Principal, McCaskey High School, School District of Lancaster (PA)
