Snapshots of School Turnaround publication

The Center on School Turnaround has published profiles of three SIG schools that increased student outcomes by the end of the third year of its SIG funding. In addition to highlighting turnaround strategies, the report documents the extremely important role that the district and state played in each turnaround.  

Each of these schools received Cohort 1 SIG funding in the 2009–10 school year. The publication highlights findings from these successful turnaround cases to provide examples to state, district, and school-level educators working to strengthen struggling schools. Although no silver bullet strategy exists, CST found many similarities among the schools in terms of district and state support.
