Written for school leaders, this hands-on guide to improving student outcomes and schoolwide performance clearly outlines 50 strategies to achieve high-performing schools. Emphasizing a focus on educational equity for all students, the authors organize the 50 ways for improvement around six critical standards:

establish a well-crafted, focused, valid, and clear curriculum to direct teaching;

provide assessments aligned to the curriculum;

align program and instructional resources to the curriculum and provide student equality and equity;

use a mastery learning approach and effective teaching strategies;

establish curriculum expectations, monitoring, and accountability;

institute effective district and school planning, staff development, resource allocations, and provide for a quality learning environment.
