A State-District Partnership Approach for School Improvement: The Kansas Learning Network (session #329)
With a regularly shifting political tide and constant change in leadership at all levels, states, districts and schools need a clear research-based process for developing and implementing policies and practices that will yield predictable student achievement gains. The Kansas Learning Network fills that need by building and nurturing collaborative systems that support integrated and coherent change over time, at the state, district and school levels.
