About Us

The CLS Difference

Collaborative Learning Solutions (CLS) is committed to challenging the status quo in education and interrupting predictable outcomes for marginalized youth. We intentionally disrupt antiquated thinking. We practice humility, recognizing we don’t always have the answers and committing to a process of lifelong learning. Most importantly, we focus relentlessly on building relationships with our clients. We are a national leader in providing innovative school climate solutions. We believe that complex problems require integrated solutions that involve evidence-based methodologies and practices, and focus on building internal and local capacity. Toward that end, we have partnered with hundreds of schools, districts, and educational agencies across the nation to support building customized systems around Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) that braid district initiatives together and represent the best approaches to education.
