School Turnaround

As more and more schools slip into improvement status in Florida, additional avenues for supporting these low-performing schools need to be sought. In response, the Florida and the Islands Regional Comprehensive Center (FLICC) leverages previous work with school improvement to target the lowest performing schools in the state.

To maximize effectiveness in this effort, FLICC is collaborating with the Florida Department of Education’s (FLDOE) to provide professional development to improve the support for low-performing schools. This project will involve a two-prong approach to build the capacity of the FLDOE and its Regional Offices. The first prong is providing support in the 5 Essentials Framework for school improvement. In addition, for the second prong, FLICC staff will partner with the FLDOE to support SIG Cohort 4.
