Networked Improvement Community: The RFP and the Community of Support

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 2:00 pm 
Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00) 

AASA and Talent Development Secondary (TDS) have created a Networked Improvement Community (NIC) to help transform our most challenged secondary schools in the era of ESSA. By joining this select group, AASA/TDS will establish a strong, connected cohort of districts and schools that benefit from common systems of support, convening, training & technical assistance, staffing, structures and measures of success.

This third webinar will review the following key issues:

• Review history of education and why we have a subset of schools where the greatest challenges are concentrated;
• Why TDS and AASA came together on this;
• Our goal of creating a shared community of practice around improving our most challenged secondary schools in the ESSA era;
• The Four Levers of Change in traditionally low performing schools;
• What the evidence says about how best to pull them;
• Description of the AASA Pre-con on February 13;
• Elements of the RFP to be issued at that Pre-con.

Presenters: Robert Balfanz, Sr. Research Scientist and Co-Director of Center for Social Organization of Schools at Johns Hopkins University School of Education, and Charles Hiteshew, Executive Director, Talent Development Secondary
