School Improvement Services

What is School Improvement Services?

Greenbush School Improvement Services (SIS)  is a consortium of over 125 school districts and private schools covering much of eastern Kansas and beyond. The Greenbush SIS staff who support these school districts have served as administrators and school leaders who understand the various components that help systems operate. We strive to provide technical assistance and professional learning opportunities to district and building leaders, as well as teachers and support staff.

SIS districts receive year-round support in the areas of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and accreditation through customized professional learning plans and a variety of additional included core services, such as workshop attendance at reduced or no cost, a variety of collaborative forums, survey templates, district data profiles, and more
