Stealing from the Best: How All Schools Can Learn from One Another
For many years, researchers and practitioners have written, talked about and agonized over why district and charter schools often miss opportunities to collaborate. This session will take a quick nod to what we know works when sharing across sector lines and will then move to providing the time and the space for you to roll up your sleeves and start doing. District, charter and non-profit leaders will describe innovative approaches that led to progress in closing gaps and reaching students who too often get left behind. These leaders will share the challenge they needed to address, why they chose the approach, and the impact it has had on their schools and students. In smaller breakouts, experts will answer specific questions and provide the details you will need in order to leave the session ready to "try this at home.”
