Reaching New Heights: Turning Around Low-Performing Schools - This guidebook provides a policy framework for turning schools around and highlights best practices from states, districts and schools. The authors suggest five guiding principles for governors and other policymakers: (1) not all low-performing schools are the same, (2) the solution must include capacity-building, (3) districts are essential collaborators in efforts to turn around schools, (4) be prepared for the long haul and (5) assistance to low-performing schools should be part of a larger strategy of school improvement.
