School Improvement Under ESSA: What You Need to Know to Engage
Results of recent school improvement efforts have been, at best, mixed. Although some schools and districts have made substantial gains, in too many places, student outcomes have barely budged. What’s more, decisions about what to do about low performance have often been made without engaging students, families, and community members.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about the unprecedented opportunities — and responsibilities — that the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) presents for equity advocates to influence critical state, district and school decisions about school improvement. Learn how you can get involved and what you can do to help make sure the school improvement process is rooted in data — and relies on evidence-based interventions that research shows have improved student outcomes.
