A Case Study with Green Dot Public Schools on Managing the Tension between Fidelity and Adaptation when Scaling-Up
Cevallos, Pedro Felipe, Jr.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of California, Los Angeles
This dissertation was a single case study with Green Dot Public Schools (GDPS) describing their rapid scale-up process. Specifically, it investigates the phenomenon of the inherent tension between maintaining the fidelity of the original model school's design, culture and values with local adaptation of the brand by stakeholders at the expansion sites. 28 GDPS stakeholders were interviewed and a co-research team composed of eight members from four different school clusters volunteered to help guide the study as well as analyze and check the validity of the emerging findings and interpretations. Ultimately, this study aimed to assist GDPS in increasing student achievement by formulating recommended practices that will most effectively assure implementation of its core values and brand at all expansion schools.
