District Readiness to Support School Turnaround

The Center on School Turnaround released a guide providing state education agencies (SEAs) and districts (LEAs) with guidance about how to assess a district’s readiness to support school turnaround initiatives. Often, school turnaround efforts focus only on the school’s structure and leadership. Rarely do policymakers or practitioners think about school turnaround as a system-level issue requiring fundamental changes in district-level practice to establish the conditions for school turnaround to succeed. This guide also provides an introduction to turnaround readiness conditions that help districts best equip turnaround schools to succeed.
