–A superintendent and a teachers’ union president share the spotlight for using a collaborative “employee summit” to find $40 million in budget cuts.
–One district’s dropout rate has declined by nearly 90 percent with the creation of “early college” high schools, a career academy, and an intensive dropout-recovery effort that sent staff members door to door to bring back dropouts.
–One leader moved all 16 of her district’s lowest-performing schools out of “academic emergency” status.
–Another has dramatically transformed its approach to teaching English-learners.
