Which states are using which turnaround models, as represented in the recent U.S. Department of Education's "Blueprint for Reform: The Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act?" A search for state-level policies on turnaround models was completed based on the targeted states list provided. According to US Department of Education (ED), 30 states turned in applications for School Improvement Funds. Of those 30 states, 13 are included in the target list (Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, California, Illinois, and Nebraska do not have an application on file for School Improvement Grants). Many states appear to not prescribe a blueprint turnaround model but allow individual LEAs to determine what model they will use for each individual school based on the school's needs. (Information is not yet available on the choices made by individual LEAs. LEA school improvement grants are due to State Departments of Education May 2010.) Where state-level turnaround options are prescribed, the options do not always fit neatly into one of the four blueprint turnaround model categories. Generally speaking, though, prescribed state-level turnaround options are most likely to be similar to, first, the Restart model (approximately 54%), followed by the Turnaround model (approximately 30%), the Transformation model (approximately 14%), and, lastly, the School Closure model (approximately 3%).
