Our summit last fall, Sustaining Turnaround at Scale, generated powerful conversations. Our unique event brought district leaders together with more than 20 turnaround partners to explore the challenges and opportunities facing large urban districts that have significant numbers of turnaround schools. The discussions focused on systemic strategies that will benefit all schools and be sustained after the turnaround funding is gone.
We have just completed the first brief in a new series we are writing on the lessons and ideas generated from those powerful conversations. This first brief reviews the five critical components of a complete district strategy for sustainable turnaround at scale. Future briefs will dig deeper into areas such as human capital, using data, and more.
Thanks to the Carnegie Corporation of New York for supporting the work. The brief was written by Karen Miles, Kristen Ferris and Barbara Christianson.
We hope you find this new series useful.
