The Kickstart School Restart group concluded their year-long program of cohort-based learning in our host city of Oakland, California. EdPlex developed and facilitated the program content for all the cohort sessions, including the topics for this final session:

  • Setting performance expectations for schools in turnaround or restart
  • Creating ways to apply existing accountability frameworks to turnaround schools more flexibly
  • Prioritizing student growth data in holding schools accountable

In addition, the group engaged in a consultancy protocol on behalf of our hosts, Oakland Unified School District, to support their efforts to authentically engage families and community members in their school transformation processes.

Cohort participants visited Greenleaf Elementary School, an example of a successful community and teacher-led school transformation.

Many thanks to our program sponsors at the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation for making this professional learning and collaboration experience possible.
