Funded by grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Noyce Foundation, Practical Tools for District Transformation provides district leaders with frameworks, principles and specific techniques for evaluating opportunities for transformation and communicating clearly and effectively with stakeholders. In the Practical Tools series, ERS draws on more than a decade of experience to provide insights on common mistakes and smart action steps for improving resource use. District leaders can engage these strategies by downloading one of the in-depth guides and go further by taking the interactive online self-assessment built around each guide. Resources include:
Preliminary work with districts using these guides is encouraging. Please take a look and let us know if you have any questions.
