COMPANY: Re-inventing Schools Coalition
COMPANY DESCRIPTION: Re-inventing Schools Coalition (RISC) works to transform education systems using
a comprehensive school reform framework set up as a performance-based system comprised of four components:
Shared Vision, Leadership, Personalized Mastery, Continuous Improvement.
Simply put…We give kids the best opportunity to learn! We are a national educational foundation that supports
schools and districts in their transition from a time-based to a performance-based system which results in them
realizing their highest learning potential.
Our Education Specialists train and coach teachers, administrators, students, parents and community members to
design and implement a unique personal mastery system.
We’re a bunch of radicals that began our journey by changing how kids learn in Alaska, and now we’re in the rest of
the US spreading our unique way of education. When not doing that, we are ski joring across Alaska with our
beautiful sled dogs.

• Visual Branding guidelines that includes specific colors, fonts, and graphic elements to build into communications, print and online mediums

Our clients are educational organizations, usually school districts, who realize they need to change how they teach
their students. Our mission is to help them reinvent education and how kids learn-- for all students regardless of
their ability or background. We give powerful presentations around the world to empower education organizations
to reinvent themselves focusing on the fact that every student is a genius. We have a great product and have proven
that it works...we need our logo and brand identity to be as strong as our results!
We have an existing logo and an idea of what we want for our updated logo, as well as a banner logo for our
documents and presentations. We use these on FB, our blog and website as well as monthly newsletters to our

generic and looks a little too “pre-school.”
