Schools and Districts Use Resources Wisely to Increase Achievement and Graduate More Students.
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
In a time of reduced funding, schools are meeting the challenge to continue improving classroom practices, student achievement and graduation rates. Many schools and teachers are forming networks to exchange information via the Internet as they tap into free electronic resources. Career/technical (CT) instructors are teaching students about Internet technology increasingly used by business and industry. Principals are making it possible for teachers to work together to focus on solutions to school and classroom challenges, while teachers are opening their classrooms to administrators and peers who can offer ways to fine-tune instruction. Many schools have learned the value of having a school improvement consultant to share methods of school and classroom enhancement that have proven effective in other educational settings. This newsletter describes strategies districts and schools are using to make the most of limited resources in a time of reduced funding and budget cuts.
