ASU Academy
At Middle fork

Appalachian State University's Lab School, Academy at Middle Fork, in Winston Salem, NC, requested assistance in telling their story using data that could show the overall impact of their model on more than test scores. Additionally, the Academy wanted help creating an innovative mission and vision, then bringing that to life through Professional Development.


The first project was a data dashboard and evidence-based outreach materials for the school that looked at all aspects of student, teacher, and parent satisfaction. The second project resulted in OWL co-designing a mission & vision with teachers, students, and stakeholders that lays out a bold path for innovation. In this new school year, another project emerged to strategize implementation and support of a common instructional framework.

The two projects resulted in a variety of positive outcomes. First, the data dashboard and outreach materials helped the Academy tell its story to stakeholders who renewed the school's charter for another 5 years, while also providing a framework for it to continue tracking a variety of data to assess its ongoing impact.

"[The best part was] coming together for a collective mission and vision."
