Atlanta Board of Ed embraces high-impact school improvement strategies
With a focus on equity, parent engagement and improved math and literacy, the Atlanta Board of Education recently voted to adopt its “Goals and Guardrails” strategy for school improvement. The plan would have the superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools make use of “high-impact interventions” if a school struggles for three years. These could include replacing teachers or leadership, merging the school with another or hiring an expert group to run the school.
“The urgency is now,” said Kimberly Dukes, a leader of the parent group Atlanta Thrive. “I hope you are bold and vote for accountability tonight because our children’s future can no longer wait.”
