School Climate and Social-Emotional Supports


SMI is based in Boston and has clients and projects in Massachusetts and around the country. We design and manage a variety of multidimensional, multi-year technical assistance efforts for school districts, foundations, state and federal agencies and other organizations.

 We have worked with the Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on a range of projects since 2008 – often focused on helping schools and districts build their capacity to address the needs of all of the students they serve; for example, by strengthening school culture, building more effective systems and partnerships to support struggling students, developing leadership strategies and structures, rethinking schedules, refining student support systems and family engagement strategies, etc.).

 SMI is also the state appointed receiver for the Parker Elementary School in New Bedford and has worked with other districts to deepen the “bench” of district and school leaders who can design and sustain effective school turnaround/improvement efforts.
