Turnaround Schools in California: The Story of General Grant Middle School

This webinar discusses a research-based ten-step process to define turnaround schools in California, and the strategies most often cited as contributing to nine schools’ turnaround success.

A principal and a teacher from one of the nine schools—General Grant Middle School—also share their school’s turnaround story.

Webinar topics include:

  • Identifying and defining turnaround schools
  • Challenges across schools
  • Common strategies
  • The experience at General Grant Middle School

While the research study focuses on California schools, educators from around the nation will find the strategies applicable to their contexts.
