For decades, as the the most intensive efforts to improve student achievement focused largely on the lowest-performing schools, students who struggled in above-average or high-performing schools were often in danger of being overlooked.
In this chat, Carlas McCauley, director of WestEd's Center on School Turnaround and Penny Bidne, principal of Brimhall Elementary School in Roseville, Minn., will take questions on why it's been challenging for some high-performing schools to acknowledge that some students are struggling and explain how educators can identify and address the needs of those students who may be lagging on key measures such as test scores, graduation rates, participation in SAT, ACT, or Advanced Placement courses, or absenteeism.
