Academic Distress

All schools in academic distress and pre-academic distress receive support and interventions that enable them to transform their school cultures, dramatically improve student achievement, and sustain their improvement over time.

  • Create a transparent process that proactively identifies schools approaching distress.
  • Empower one unit at the ADE and staff it with top talent to manage the process.
  • Measure progress holistically (not just test scores) and share with the community.
