“In a time when acceleration is vital, authors Sharon V. Kramer and Sarah Schuhl have taken a positive approach with a new mindset to support high levels of learning for all. These meaningful shifts and practical strategies will change how you think about what students can really do. This book is a call to action and will prepare you well for significant transformations.”

Janet Gilbert, principal, Mountain Shadows Elementary School, Glendale, Arizona

“In my work as an instructional leader, PLC coach, and Priority Schools coach, I am always finding pieces to fit together that address our most needy students. The idea of shifting the mindsets of students and staff from remediation to acceleration has proven to be the most worthy of investment and recipe for success. Kramer and Schuhl have taken their shared expertise and knowledge from years of work with priority schools and created a logical, systematic, and proven road map for all schools to follow in order to provide grade-level mastery for all students. Based on the premise of the four critical questions of a PLC, this book provides substance and context on what it really means when we say, ‘all means all.’”
