COLLABORATE TO IMPLEMENT BEST PRACTICES
The School Board should facilitate school improvement by researching and sharing best practices with schools. By collaborating with schools, the School Board will provide assistance to schools and help cultivate a culture of continuous improvement.
The Pledge: School Board members should take the following actions:
(1) Support district-led research on national best practices around areas of need, such as services for students with disabilities, discipline, and professional development;
(2) Create structured opportunities for schools to share their own best practices and current challenges so they are better able to learn from one another; and
(3) Support the development of local best practices by collecting reliable and timely data on student and school performance.
