Sustaining Reform Report

States seeking to improve student outcomes continually face the challenge of sustaining and adapting the reforms they have implemented. Sustainability becomes even more difficult in the face of inevitably evolving conditions—such as a change in resources/funding, leadership or stakeholders. To address this challenge, the Reform Support Network (RSN) formed the Sustainability Work Group in 2014 to bring together six Race to the Top State grantees to explore and address sustainability. This brief is based on their experiences, the tools they used, and the lessons uncovered through the work group process.
