From 2003-06, Adam consulted with Secondary Academy for Success in Bothell, Washington, to integrate students as partners into their school improvement planning process. 

Adam provided training to nontraditional student leaders at this alternative high school in suburban Seattle. After facilitating a school-wide forum for 150 students on school improvement, students joined committees and made reports to the school board on how they think schools should change. Their input drove school improvement efforts for the next several years, including a school redesign process that was implemented.
