Turnaround School Academy

 Principals and team will complete an in-depth study of their school’s data to determine root causes of school letter grade. The team will then create a plan with goals and timelines to address issues to turnaround school status. School principal must attend each meeting. The team members attending with the principal can be the same group for each meeting or change with each session, whichever is best for your school.

Each school's team will:

  • perform an in-depth data analysis of their school's data
  • create a strategic plan to address school's issues
  • work within each of the eight turnaround principles
