New Year – New Start for Challenged Schools

New Year – New Start for Challenged Schools

Do you work with one of the 5% lowest performing schools in your state? If so, we would like to kick off the new year by exploring whether we can help. Working with our most challenged (CSI) schools is often daunting, complex and isolating.

Would you rather take on this challenge collaboratively with supports from proven school improvement experts, or go it alone?

Talent Development Secondary (TDS), AASA, The School Superintendents Association and the Everyone Graduates Center (EGC) are looking for superintendents and principals who want to improve together. We are forming a network of CSI secondary schools from 20 districts across the nation. These districts and their CSI schools will take on this difficult challenge together, share the work, learn from each other, and benefit from the support of these expert partners.

What the Networked Improvement Community will provide:

  • AASA will link you together for three years with fellow superintendents facing similar challenges, including at an annual preconference before its national meeting.
  • TDS will provide three years of direct school support to implement a comprehensive, evidence-based improvement plan including instructional, organizational, professional development, school climate, and post-secondary preparation components – all tailored to local circumstances.
  • EGC will provide and help you analyze formative performance data so you will know if the CSI schools are on-track to improvement.
  • AASA, TDS, and EGC along with the 20 superintendents and principals will form a networked improvement community (NIC) so we can share the work, learn together and get better faster!
NEXT STEPS to get involved in this opportunity:
