Turnaround and Transformation
Our children only get one shot at getting an elementary, middle, or high school education. We must do everything in our power to help them be successful.
“Because we know that about 12 percent of America’s schools produce 50 percent of America’s dropouts, we’re going to focus on helping states and school districts turn around their 5,000 lowest-performing schools in the next five years…” –President Obama
Turnaround and Transformation models aim to transform chronically low-performing schools.
In the Turnaround model, districts must implement a comprehensive approach to substantially improve student outcomes.
In the Transformation model, schools must take steps to increase teacher and school leader effectiveness and institute comprehensive instructional reforms, among other things.
Education Northwest has listed a comparison of School Improvement Grant models, including Closure, Restart, Turnaround, and Transformation.
