The nation's Regional Educational Laboratories (RELs) hosted an interactive webinar featuring Turning Around Chronically Low-Performing Schools, one of 14 practice guides produced by the What Works Clearinghouse, U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences.

The guide identifies four practices for improving the performance of chronically low-performing schools.

Nationally recognized school improvement expert Sam Redding, Director of the Center on Innovation and Improvement, discussed the practice guide recommendations with a special emphasis on how education service agencies (ESAs) can help low-performing schools and districts with turnaround efforts.

A panel of ESA and State Education Agency (SEA) representatives shared their insights about and experiences with turning around low-performing schools.
