State Strategies for Fixing Failing Schools and Districts - n 2009, the National Governors Association (NGA) Center for Best Practices awarded competitive grants to four states to participate in the State Strategies to Improve Chronically Low-Performing Schools project. The project provided Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts and Mississippi with grant funds and consulting services to develop policies and plans creating the conditions to turn around chronically low-performing schools and districts. The project yielded valuable lessons and suggested strategies that states and territories can use to fix failing schools and districts. (NGA Center for Best Practices, March 2011)...
