Priority School Interventions
“SouthDakota will implement effective dramatic, systemic change in thelowest-performing schools by publicly identifying “Priority Schools” andensuring that each LEA with one or more of these schools implements, for three yearsmeaningful interventions aligned with the turnaround principles in each ofthese schools”(pg. 54 Approved Flexibility waiver).
These meaningful interventions aligned to the federal turnaround principles will be implemented in all identified Priority Schools beginning in the fall of the 2012-2013school year. All interventions are thoughtfully wrapped around a central theme of developing teams at both the district and school level which, when effectively implemented, purposed, organized and supervised will provide aninfrastructure for continuous improvement.
