AKOM Professional Development
Independent Research Studies
Since 2000, AKOM has supported more than a dozen high quality research studies to examine the impact of the Schools Attuned Program across a variety of states and regions. In addition, many individual schools and districts have collected their own internal data on the impact of the programs in their locales.
Considered as a whole, these studies provide a substantial and compelling body of evidence that Schools Attuned is an effective program to help students succeed and has positive impacts on teachers and schools.
