The authors of Collaborative School Improvement argue that districts can play a powerful part in helping schools build the capacity to engage in inquiry-based reform--but that this effort requires a shift in districts' traditional role as a professional development provider.
Drawing on case studies from three districts, the authors identify eight key practices for effective school-district collaboration. By helping districts teach--and model--an inquiry-based process, Collaborative School Improvement promises to offer powerful new support for scaling up data-driven instructional reform.
