The Center on School Turnaround provides technical assistance and shares research-based practices and emerging promising practices to help states increase their capacity to support districts in turning around their lowest-performing schools.
This collection was curated by the Appalachia Regional Comprehensive Center (ARCC) to complement a 2015 series of online “fireside chats” for their states based on the publication The State Role in School Turnaround.
In this second installment of a 2-part blog post focusing on the state role in school turnaround, Bryan Hassel highlights the importance of “getting serious about talent”, “creating a real ‘or else’,” and “demanding sustainability.”
We support state, district, and school leaders working to turn around the nation’s lowest-achieving schools.
A project of the Center on School Turnaround at WestEd, the STLC provides a range of school improvement resources, and connects users with specialists and other educators to share school turnaround research and promising practices.
