Read the White Paper
How a strategy or practice is implemented in schools has everything to do with its success. In this paper, we discuss three keys to effective implementation: 1) empowering teachers with knowledge, skills, and ongoing support, 2) encouraging school leaders to set goals and foster a culture of growth, and 3) establishing a tiered system of accountability to coordinate efforts, monitor progress, and provide sustained support. This research is the 6th installment in our School Turnaround Model Series, and hyperlinks to the full series can be found at the end of this paper.
