Overcoming the Challenges of School Improvement Through a Research-Based, Collaborative Approach REL

First page of report

Many continuous improvement and school turnaround models neglect the all-important work of creating the right systemic conditions for change. This paper describes Education Northwest’s Success Now! ™ approach in which coaches guide school leaders in selecting and addressing a small number of conditions likely to hinder their progress. Schools are encouraged to focus on just two or three manageable actions during iterative change cycles that build on a succession of quick wins. Used successfully in a number of rural school districts, this model may be of special interest to state and local education leaders seeking sustainable approaches to school improvement.
