Organize your system for guaranteed equity

The results are clear: quality standards-driven assignments lead to quality student work. The more quality assignments students are given, the better prepared they are to enter college or the workforce.

LDC helps to ensure equity in a system through the levers that matter:

Quality curriculum + leaders, coaches, and teachers = improved student results.

We provide the platform, curriculum resources, coaching and feedback, and professional learning courses needed to ensure that every student experiences rigor and quality in every classroom. With LDC, turn standards into the baseline, not the goal.
