TimeWise is a leader in the field of high-performance school design, working with district and school leaders to design schools that make the most of resources, creating high support conditions to support students and teachers.
TimeWise gathers teams with expertise in the particular challenge at hand, working with partners in states, districts, networks and organizations to design high support solutions to challenging problems.
We focus on next-generation innovations with an eye on scale, sustainability, and success on implementation of the Common Core State Standards.
TimeWise lead the design, launch and early implementation of the Literacy Design Collaborative [LDC], a national initiative designed to support implementation of Common Core State Standards for literacy in secondary content areas.
The TimeWise-lead LDC Design Team created the LDC literacy framework for the core secondary subject areas of ELA, social studies and science. Partners use the LDC framework as a common chassis to create LDC tasks, modules, and courses designed to teach students to meet common core literacy standards while also learning to meet content demands at high levels of performance.
The project is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Sketch a School is a web-based program that introduces users to the TimeWise-designed Masterful Scheduling approach to school design and resource optimization focused on high quality support for teaching and learning.
The approach focuses on two complimentary perspectives. Instructional efficiency approaches help users identify opportunities to create conditions that best support teaching and learning by using existing resources in a more efficient way. Instructional strategy walks users through strategically planning course offerings and sequencing to better align with goals.
Sketch a School was developed in partnership with Wireless Generation/Amplify and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The iPD Challenge is a new Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-sponsored initiative focused on changing professional development to a next-generation model. The goal of the project is to work with a set of partner districts to create much more effective learning systems for teachers, increase district use of more effective models of delivery and new forms of teacher collaboration, build systems and processes for optimizing resources.
The focus is on demonstrating how professional learning systems connect specifically to improvement of instruction and learning by individuals and groups, and to create scalable solutions that can travel across networks quickly and more
TimeWise is leading the Resource Optimization Team with partners Alvarez & Marsal and Wireless Generation/Amplify. The goal is to support districts in creating a play to ensure long term sustainability of iPD by efficiently and effectively redeploying existing resources (time, money, people) to high priority activities and tracking those reallocations.
TimeWise focuses on helping districts develop school designs that optimize instructional conditions in support of teaching and learning, while redeploying resources for additional time for teachers to learn.
This will be a brief description and overview of School By Design. We’ll talk about who the work is for, and what the project intends to accomplish. If we have some stats or results to share, we should do so here. After that, there will be a list format you can see below where it shows the Focus, the Client, and then a link to the website.
(The Team's) thinking helps push me to consider new and different ideas.
