Although these schools serve low income communities with many challenges

Although these schools serve low-income communities with many challenges,

they demonstrate strong evidence of outstanding achievement for all of the demographic groups they serve.


Why are these schools more likely to attain excellent learning results than schools with similar demographic compositions?


In these schools principals lead in ways that promote quality teaching and learning

And principals do so by
And principals do so by… learning results than schools with similar demographic compositions?

  • keeping attention focused on the level of student learning in classrooms,

  • supporting teachers in using formative data to monitor students’ progress towards mastery of key concepts and adjust instruction accordingly, and

  • assessing whether what is happening in classrooms is leading to better learning results for students.


Project leadership meetings
Project Leadership Meetings learning results than schools with similar demographic compositions?

  • meetings occur quarterly

  • principals and other site/teacher leaders from grantee district

  • location of meeting rotates among district schools

  • school leadership teams report on indicators of progress in pursuing grant milestones and improving math instruction

  • at each meeting, all participants visit classrooms at host school

  • NCUST Executive Coach facilitates meetings, helping leaders learn how best to support teachers in improving instruction via MDTP and other formative assessment data
