Life After an MSP: Lessons Learned about Building Capacity for On-Going Reform


"What does it mean to build a legacy or to accomplish sustainability? Is it about relationships that survive the churn of inevitable personnel change? Is it about creating capacity at all levels? Does it involve demonstrating value-added? Funded ten years ago, the MSP of SW PA added math and science expertise to the staff of a regional education agency. It aimed for scale, involving 50+ school districts across an 11 county region, engaging rural, urban and suburban districts with enrollments from 600 to 4,000+. As a comprehensive MSP, it engaged district teams in systemic planning, while providing all building administrators with sustained learning opportunities.
