Turning High-Poverty Schools Into High-Performing Schools: 12 Strategies That Make The Difference
This session focuses on a research-based framework for leadership and learning in high poverty schools. Recent case studies from high-performing/high-poverty (HP / HP) schools provide compelling insight into what it takes to make a dramatic turnaround. This session will highlight 12 specific strategies that provide an essential foundation for success in any underperforming school. Practical study and planning tools will be provided to guide improvement in a participants own school or district. Through better understanding of how HP / HP schools achieve success with underachieving students who live in poverty, participants will acquire specific strategies and identify action steps to best support these students
