We partner with states to advance innovative turnaround strategies by facilitating much-needed collaboration among state education agency leaders.
MIE is a national leader on school and district reform, recognizing the importance of leveraging state and federal government education leaders as partners in turnaround efforts. Our State Policy & Networks Program helps shape state and federal education policy and practice related to school turnaround, and engages an influential network of education leaders who are committed to transforming low-performing schools.
State Development Network
MIE launched the State Development Network (SDN) in 2011. The SDN is a multi-state network of State Education Agency (SEA) leaders who are committed to turning around low-performing schools by increasing state-level capacity and transforming policy. The SDN is designed to advance states’ turnaround strategies, in part by facilitating much-needed collaboration among states.
