Collaborative for Educational ServicesJust because we love collaboration doesn t mean we don t understand individual needs. Quite the opposite is true. We work with districts to assess their own data on students to design solutions that solve the challenges they face today. And we teach educators hands-on, classroom techniques that individualize instruction to build on each student s strengths and overcome their unique learning challenges.
The Collaborative serves learners from birth through adulthood. We serve our public school district members in Franklin and Hampshire Counties, and educators in communities across Massachusetts.
