State Services

The School Turnaround Group (STG) offers two ways to help states with school turnaround.

State Development Network

A collaboratory network structure to allow resource-sharing of school turnaround strategies. The State Development Network (SDN) currently has 11 state partners who convene several times throughout the year to build a community of practice and share turnaround successes. Learn more about the SDN.

Partnership Zone Initiative

The Partnership Zone is a hybrid model, combining flexible, charter-like operating conditions, clustering of schools, and increased capacity and scalability of the traditional public school district system. STG works with states to develop statewide Partnership Zones and to support state initiatives to develop Zones at the district level. To learn more see: Partnership Zone Initiative
