What Makes Great Districts?

Various studies show the same reality: Great districts share commonalities. Studies have found five attributes of great districts:

1. Coherence and alignment of instructional programs
2. Capacity-building of faculty (professional development for teachers)
3. Rich parent/community involvement
4. Student-centered school environments
5. Leadership that drives change 
Let's continue working together to create the greatest district for our students.
