Shingle Springs, CA – Carla Hulce is the founder of Hulce Consulting Group, an educational consulting group that specializes in the design of coherent, performance-based learning environments aimed at improving the academic achievement of all students and improving the effectiveness and retention of leaders.
With 25 years of experience working with in public education, spending the majority working in Chicago Public Schools, Hulce has developed a framework that can help propel any school district to be a high-performing school district.
While most reform policies for K-12 education typically focus on teachers, HCG is exclusively focused on leaders. Leaders impact the teachers who impact the students. Shaping the future through expertise, innovation and thought leadership, HCG coaches superintendents and principals, applying the principles of performance management to K-12 education.
Performance management is the development and implementation of policies and procedures that ensures students’ needs are met consistent with the goals and objectives of the school.
HCG conducts needs assessments of districts, developing road maps to help them tackle their problems and support them throughout that journey.
Hulce says one of HCG’s missions is to dismantle the current infrastructure of K-12 pre-service education.
“Our colleges of education are broken,” says Hulce. “Most professors have never run a school or managed a district, so there's a wide chasm between pre-service and in-service. We need smart people who not only have the concept knowledge, but also know how to manage, build, support the adults in the building as well as the students, bringing out the best in people.”
