in Partnership with the AZ Dept. Education




San Juan Diego Institute is honored to work with Educators for Academic Excellence and the Arizona Department of Education to continue the success of Project Momentum and it's work in helping improving school outcomes.

Project Momentum drives school improvement based on three overlapping pillars.

1) Focus and align the work of schools with the high-yield instructional practices that produce the largest gains in student learning. (Hattie and Zierer, 2018)

2) Provide the time, training and support needed for teachers to implement the targeted strategies.

3) Establish well-defined expectations for increasing student learning, monitoring progress continuously to improve instructional practice and acting to hold each other accountable for achieving our shared goals.

Read a Case Study from Avondale School District


“As an Executive Director, I know I need an outside perspective to really gauge the operations and effectiveness of Fraternus, but there are so many voices that getting trustworthy help can be overwhelming.  Everyone has advice to give you (and consulting contracts to sign) but finding someone who really understands your mission and methods sometimes seems hopeless.  SJDI was just what we needed.  Almost two years out from their original assessment, I can see that their efforts and guidance has helped us reshape our efforts so that we know that the effectiveness of the mission is on par with our zeal for it.  We would not be there without SJDI.”

Executive Director, Fraternus USA
