Strategies for School Turnaround: School and District Level Perspectives

With recent developments in federal education policy, school turnaround has become an increasingly prominent area of focus for practitioners and policymakers nationwide. However, what we know about effectively turning schools around is limited.

In this archived webinar, we explore strategies at the school and district level to improve the most struggling schools. (Note that our focus is not on the lowest five percent of schools but on schools in the lowest third of school performance in California.)

This webinar focuses on:

  • Effective strategies cited by 9 turnaround school principals
  • The role the district can play in both contributing to and reversing school failure
  • A practitioner perspective on what is required for dramatic school change
