Our partner district Charlotte-Mecklenburg was featured in Newsweek for its “Strategic Staffing Initiative,” a district-wide effort for turning around its lowest performing schools. The strategy involves moving the system’s top talent to focus on their toughest challenges with full district leadership support. The initial results are promising.
For more information on this initiative, see the case study on Charlotte we released last spring. Also, if you’re working on developing a turnaround strategy in your district, take a look at our new district guide, Turnaround Schools: District Strategies for Success and Sustainability.
