Cedar Hill ISD: (Dr. Gerald Hudson, Superintendent) "The Fundamental 5 creates a common language between teachers and instructional leaders, which quickly closes the gap between talk and action and improves student performance."
Blaine School District: (Dr. Christopher Grainger, Superintendent) "The Fundamental 5 has been instrumental in developing a common language around instruction that has led to an increase in teacher use of high-yield classroom practices. This directly leads to higher student engagement and improved student performance. Better Use of the F5 = Better Student Outcomes."
