About the Catalyst:Ed Network
The Catalyst:Ed Provider Network is a coalition of 750+ mission-aligned organizations and individuals with deep experience working with and supporting schools and systems and expertise across areas relevant to schools, systems, and other education organizations. Providers range from national and regional organizations (incl. nonprofits that offer technical assistance services, consulting firms, and research organizations) to independent consultants. All network members go through a rigorous three-step vetting process (applications, interviews, references).
At the project midpoint and once a project is completed, we ask both parties to provide feedback and review their experiences on the project. The feedback is shared with the counterparty. Providers who propose for projects have the option of sharing their past feedback with prospective clients, although we do not require them to do so. We also ask both parties to review their experiences with Catalyst:Ed, so we can get better at serving our network.
