The U.S. Department of Education recently launched an online School Turnaround Learning Community, available for any individuals with an interest in school turnaround. The site offers access to groups based on your interests, discussion boards, webinars, chat events, links to other resources, and a search option to view and network with users. Overall, the new website is a great way to share common practices, as well as explore resources that you may not have known about otherwise. For example, the “Resource” tab allows you to filter your search by specific turnaround interest, a topic within that general interest, and the type of resource you are seeking—whether it is a toolkit, chat topic, newsletter, or case study.
Membership is free, and it’s a quick and easy process. If you aren’t one of the 4,300 subscribed users, you may want to register now!
