Is your school community all in?

Few schools can claim 100 percent attendance at parent-teacher conferences, standard-setting student achievement, 80 percent staff retention, and resilience through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic that saw 60 percent of students and 99 percent of staff report in person. Brilla Public Charter Schools, a K-8 network serving a diverse student population in the Bronx, can.

What made Brilla different? Its school community - students, families, and teachers - was all in. All in for Brilla's vision for its schools, and all in for each other, due in large part to Brilla's relentless focus on school culture. This engaging book shows how Brilla built its successful vision-driven culture in pursuit of high performance, engaged clients, and committed talent - a strategy that can be used by public and private schools at any level.


"All In is a testament to what's possible in public education when the focus starts with building a school culture that is not about compliance, but instead is grounded in a deep belief in the limitless potential of all children to achieve at extraordinary levels. Kelsey LaVigne shows us how to create a culture that is both intentional and supportive, providing a roadmap for this critical aspect of all joyfully rigorous schools." - Arin Lavinia, Founder and CEO, Lavinia Group

"Kelsey Lavigne is absolutely one of the very best culture builders I have ever met. I highly encourage all fellow educators and learners to read, study and leverage All In on behalf of the children and families you serve. The future of our schools would be so much brighter if they reflected the type of visionary, engaging and high impact school culture Kelsey guides her readers to build." - Aaron Brenner, General Partner of Seton Education Partners; Founder of Brillante Academy and KIPP SHINE Prep

"Imagine a place where every kid in every classroom brings the best version of themselves and learning is thrilling. And now imagine that every adult feels that way as they grow as a professional and serve their students. This is what Kelsey LaVigne has built. I'm so excited that Kelsey is sharing her vision and her practices and eager to see more schools bursting with joy for kids and adults as a result." - Julie Kennedy, Practice Leader, Academics and Character, Charter School Growth Fund

"Culture exists whether you plan it or not, and it's felt and seen in every facet of a school, including academics. All In provides key steps to creating and sustaining an equitable school culture that allows an entire school community be their full selves and thrive. Read the book as a team and get ready for some great discussion." - Freddy Gonzalez, KIPP Foundation's Chief Academic & Talent Systems Officer
