LEVER 1: ANALYZE SCHOOL PERFORMANCE
Set the right goals and conduct an annual portfolio planning process.
LEVER 2: EXPAND GREAT OPTIONS
Implement the right strategy at every campus, from traditional school improvements to bold school actions.
District leaders establish a governance-neutral approach to expanding great education options by building a pipeline of talented campus operators, authorizing great schools, and executing at least one School Action each year.
LEVER 3: IMPROVE ACCESS
Empower parents by helping them understand, enroll in, and attend their desired school.
District leaders establish enrollment policies and practices that provide students access to all the district’s school options. Leaders provide school choice information that helps parents understand their options.
LEVER 4: CENTRAL OFFICE
Create lasting structures to sustain new policies and practices.
To maintain the long-term sustainability of the SGS Strategy, district leaders establish an Office of Innovation; give campus leaders an opportunity to apply for autonomy over staff, calendars, and budgets; and allot discretionary revenue to campus leaders based on student attendance.
