    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than three decades, he has worked with hundreds of school districts in nearly every state to help rethink and revise outdated accountability systems.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 True Accountability framework was created to help school leaders rethink the very definition of school performance. Rather than anchor evaluations in the compliance-based models of the past, True Accountability helps schools embrace a model of school performance focused on the future and providing student benefits.

    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.
