Recorded on June 10, 2015

How can states ensure positive outcomes as they provide technical support to low-performing schools?

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) School Turnaround Office provides a comprehensive system of support for school innovation and the turnaround of low-achieving schools.

In this webinar NYSED staff shared:

  • How they implemented a performance-based management system with three School Improvement Grant (SIG) cohorts
  • The key takeaways and early lessons learned in implementing the performance-based management system
  • How this proactive approach shifts the focus from standard compliance monitoring to quality control and positive outcomes

The webinar is geared toward state and district leaders focused on school turnaround and focuses on a timely topic as summer planning and SIG renewals approach.
