The Annenberg Institute for School Reform has created a portfolio of tools for districts to use in redesigning themselves for better student results. Here are the areas in which the institute suggests districts concentrate:

  • Adopting a budgeting system that allocates money to schools based on the number of students enrolled and their specific needs.
  • Reviewing central-office functioning to better support schools.
  • Embracing generally accepted principles of teaching and learning.
  • Developing effective external partnerships.
  • Finding, deploying, and keeping the best teachers and school leaders.
