Our Mission: The Tri-State Consortium is an alliance of public school districts committed to systems thinking and collaborative inquiry as pathways toward continuous improvement. Working together as colleagues and critical friends, we apply the standards of the Tri-State model to benchmark member districts’ progress in advancing teaching and learning. Consortium members support each other through external peer review of programs and practices, study groups, conferences and topic-based seminars designed to deepen professional learning.
The Consortium Today: In 2023, membership in the Consortium is 52 school districts in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, plus 7 ex officio member districts. To date, the Consortium has conducted more than 250 district visits. It currently conducts, on average, fifteen district visits each year. Just as the model encourages member districts to become “learning organizations,” the Consortium itself is committed to operating as a learning organization. Over the years,the Consortium has commissioned two large evaluation studies of the impact of the organization on its member districts. Both studies revealed high levels of satisfaction and identified areas in which the Consortium could broaden and/or improve its services to member districts.The vast majority of these suggestions have been implemented.
