    About John Tanner

    John Tanner is one of the nation’s leading voices on school-based accountability. In a career that spans more than three decades, he has worked with hundreds of school districts in nearly every state to help rethink and revise outdated accountability systems.

    His Benefits-Based Leadership program and Benefits-Based Accountability Framework were created to help school leaders rethink the very definition of school performance. Rather than anchor evaluations in the compliance-based models of the past, Benefits-Based Accountability helps schools embrace a model of school performance focused on student benefits, not test scores.

    John’s framework is used by school leaders across the country to help them develop hyper-local accountability systems, with a focus on students and communities.
