Leadership practices that can make a transformative, lasting difference in student achievement!

This book for district leaders and principals examines five Title I primary schools that have sustained outstanding achievement gains over time and shows how other schools can duplicate their success. The author presents lessons learned based on visits and interviews at each school; emphasizes creating a high-achieving culture that consistently supports improvement; and addresses key questions that include:

- with so many students below grade level, how can student achievement be improved?

- what key elements promote continuous and lasting student achievement?

How can we meet the challenging mandates of NCLB?
