District Support of School Improvement: Highlights from Three Districts. Newsletter
Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement
This newsletter addresses various supports that districts are utilizing to help keep students in school and on the path to graduation. Described herein are three districts that have been particularly successful in raising student achievement--even though they differ in their specific strategies, fund allocation, and demographic composition. A description of some district funding for school improvement and specific programs and initiatives targeted for high schools are presented in the case studies of Anne Arundel County Schools, Maryland; Lima City Schools, Ohio; and Long Beach Unified School District, California. Strong, supportive district leadership, willingness among leaders to collaborate with school personnel, and consistent use of data to support resources and tiered intervention have emerged as common themes in all three of these case studies. [The Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement is administered by Learning Point Associates under contract with the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education.]
