What is a certified Get Focused...Stay Focused® School?

Certified Get Focused...Stay Focused schools have made a commitment to implement the program with the highest standards.  These are articulated in the Performance Pledge of the Get Focused...Stay Focused program.  This road map to success was developed so all stakeholders, (schools, GFSF consultants, Academic Innovations ) agree to common program methodology and delivery. 
The benchmarks of the Performance Pledge were developed after years of learning what works and what doesn’t work in the freshman course and in high school reform.  By following this plan, schools are assured of the most direct and cost-efficient path to success for all students.
