Title I Strategies. Research Brief
Muir, Mike
Principals' Partnership
The Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory profiled 12 schools in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana that had made significant improvement in student achievement. While specifics of reform may vary, research shows that it is an ongoing process of determining goals and benchmarks by conducting needs assessments, using data to guide decision-making, aligning goals for student performance with state and local standards, and evaluating results to fine-tune reform strategies. There is a shared vision of excellence and equity, with students and staff engaged in learning. Adequate resources, a positive school climate, and effective collaborative leadership prevail. Parent and community involvement is welcome, and decision-making is based on data. School leaders play a critical role, and districts can support school reform by investing in professional development of principals in creating a collaborative culture of continuous learning and improvement.
