A powerful educational system that inspires teachers and
students to achieve their full potential, starting in persistently
underperforming schools, is possible.
Organizational change is a significant undertaking in any sector
- but in the education sector with the lives and futures of
children on the line, the challenge of changing the status quo is a
task that demands a level of commitment, leadership, and focus like
no other. The UVA School Turnaround Program is committed to
demonstrating this change is not only possible, but
Our goal is to empower system-level and school-level leaders to
achieve dramatic improvement in a set of persistently
underperforming schools. The lessons learned and successes achieved
inform strategies for expanding and sustaining success across the
school system. Our School Turnaround Program is rigorous because we
never lose sight of the real impact leadership can have on the
lives of students.
