"An absolute MUST-READ for school leaders who need to generate school improvement immediately! This book will help you make your school’s turnaround a success."

Transform your school with research-based tools!

If you want to dramatically improve your school’s performance in a short time, this book is for you. Using formative evaluation, The TurnAround ToolKit offers educators a nine-step method based on data-driven continuous improvement processes. Experts and experienced practitioners Lynn Winters and Joan Herman frame these steps within three overarching "turnaround tasks" that begin with realigning systems, progress to integrating data to create the turnaround plan, and, finally, set the stage for ongoing plan revision. Collaboration and rigorous reflection are interwoven through all the steps. The authors clearly explain how to use data to strategically choose, implement, and monitor school interventions. Included are proven methods for:

  • Improving school and student achievement
  • Meeting accountability targets
  • Increasing your school’s competitive edge and reputation
  • Building a solid system for ongoing school improvement

This comprehensive resource has it all—a clear step-by-step procedure, tools for implementing each step, pocket summaries for each chapter, and leadership guides to walk you through the process.
