The mission of Concentric is to support students, families, and schools by identifying barriers that negatively impact education and provide resources and services to improve student outcomes.
We do this by focusing on our core services:
The vision of Concentric Educational Solutions is for all students to have access to the necessary support services and resources that are required for a quality education.
There are five cornerstones on which Concentric was founded. They are absolutely essential to the work that we do. These cornerstones guide and reflect our philosophy.

Our Approach & Theory of Action
When it comes to increasing student achievement, school leaders often know what needs to be done, but struggle with how to actually do it. Concentricity is our way to help schools determine how to improve and reach their goals. Concentric Educational Solutions (CES) partners with schools and school districts to assess the situation and determine a course of action for implementing sustainable change. Addressing the four components (Organizational and Leadership Development, School Culture and Climate, Student Support Services, and Special Education Support) with a focus on student achievement, Concentricity applies a structured process for tracking and evaluating improvements quickly while leveraging the existing supports within an organization at every level.
The CES team brings knowledge, experience and expertise in school district management, organizational strategy and school leadership. By making this expertise available to schools, CES focuses on ensuring that its approach is driven by the specific needs of its clients. We begin partnerships with a needs assessment and then match the school with the appropriate solutions. The benefit of this needs-driven approach is that it allows for incremental improvement and accommodates the wide array of challenges and strengths that are present across different schools. In delivering service, CES also makes a point of infusing its work with an element of organizational development. Concentric’s goal is to not just give its clients theoretical solutions, or even just to help implement them, but rather embed its solutions within the structures of the organization so that the changes are lasting and meaningful

Concentric meets biweekly with district and school personnel to select cohorts of students who demonstrate attendance and discipline challenges. The additional personnel allows us to widen our impact and meet the needs of families as well as provides additional opportunities for us to interact with our families and enhance our relationships. Also, we are able to identify ways to address challenges that negatively impact these non-academic factors and utilize resources to fill gaps in support and services.”
