Center for Urban Educational Services

At the Center for Urban Educational Services (CUES), we assist you in efficiently aligning resources to face the challenges of urban education. The work can seem daunting, and it requires all involved in the process to be aligned to a common mission and vision.

We specialize in partnering with urban educators and schools to solve their challenges. Our consultants can help with any aspect of school improvement – from providing targeted professional development, a wide array of specialized services, to engagement with our CASE (Collaborating to Achieve Student Excellence) protocols for program development.

School Improvement Coaching/Consulting

We have coaches and consultants who work in schools and classrooms on a part-time or full-time embedded basis. That means they work side-by-side with teachers and administrators, offering resources, co-planning and co-teaching, feedback, or whatever meets a school’s particular needs. Our coaches work with content-area teachers on curriculum and instruction. We help implement school-wide initiatives, from literacy across the curriculum to positive behavior intervention programs and more.

After School: Extended Day/Extended Year

We provide academic structure for extended day and extended year programs. We partner with you to focus on the instructional components for your program.

Federal Programs Consulting

Federal Title services can be a challenging items to manage fiscally. We can help. We consult with districts to create Title budgets and expenditure reports.

Understanding Poverty

Our consultants facilitate discussion on the unique aspects of overcoming the barriers of poverty.

Collaborating to Achieve Student Excellence (CASE)

CASE is a system we’ve developed for partnering with you to solve your challenges. When we first meet to start a CASE-file, we look at six key areas:

  • Data Collection & Review
  • Implementation Plan
  • Knowledge Base
  • Accountability
  • Support
  • Evaluation
