The inspiration for this book was a crucial observation: that if the school turnaround movement is to have widespread and lasting consequences, it will need to incorporate meaningful district involvement in its efforts. The result is a volume that considers school turnaround efforts at the district level, examining the evidence thus far and indicating fruitful directions for district-based initiatives going forward. At the heart of the book are case studies of districts that have developed systemwide policies and programs for instituting turnaround reforms in their member schools. These cases-and the book as a whole-bring district-based initiatives and options into the larger discussion of the turnaround movement and its potential for improving chronically low-performing schools.
