Evansville: A Proactive Approach to Improvement. The Story behind the Indiana State Board of Education's Recent Decision
Anderson, Charis
Mass Insight Education
The Indiana State Board of Education (ISBE) has not been shy about exercising its authority to intervene in chronically underperforming schools. Under the state's Public Law 221, the Indiana Board can mandate specific interventions for any school that has received six consecutive failing grades under the state's accountability system--up to a complete takeover by the state. This eventuality befell the Glenwood Leadership Academy (GLA), a K-8 school in the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC), so in 2012, ISBE proactively partnered with Mass Insight Education to provide support as well as to develop strategies that could be rolled out district-wide to help all students. Mass Insight Education committed to working with EVSC to develop replicable, sustainable, and scalable solutions to turn around the performance of underperforming schools and to transform districts into high-performing organizations. This report details the processes instituted and the success of the students.
