Setting the Bar for School Turnaround
How Ambitious, Public Goals Can Drive School Turnaround
State education agencies (SEAs) can pull a powerful lever for school turnaround by setting goals publicly, and releasing reports on progress toward those goals at turnaround schools to build public support for turnaround efforts. Creating these reports does not require a big lift: the information for reporting can be from data that has already been gathered. This report clarifies indicators and metrics that can be most helpful for tracking progress toward goals, and explains where to find the data to inform these metrics.
