This article features Strategic School Funding for Results (SSFR) project, a new joint initiative of the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and Pivot Learning Partners (PLP) aimed at improving school finance, human resources, and management systems in large urban school districts. The goal of the project is to develop and implement more equitable and transparent strategies for allocating resources to schools within districts and to link those strategies to systems that encourage innovation and efficiency and strengthen accountability for student outcomes. To carry out the work of this initiative, AIR and PLP formed a partnership with three prominent California school districts: Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Twin Rivers. The project addresses the unique needs of each district and provides multiple opportunities to share best practices across the three districts and explore ways in which new management systems can affect student learning. Within the framework of the SSFR project, the AIR/PLP team will provide the data analysis, technical assistance, coaching, and training to implement the funding and governance strategies in the schools and will evaluate their success.
