School Restructuring: What Works When (Third Edition)

The third edition of School Restructuring: What Works When—A Guide for Education Leaders provides information for school and district leaders to choose the intervention model that will work best to improve their schools. The guide provides objective, research-based information and highlights practical decision-making tools that take into account the strengths and constraints of many districts. The June 2010 third edition includes chapters on each of the four School Improvement Grant models: turnaround, transformation, restart, and closure.

The chapter on each intervention model includes sections on the key factors influencing success or failure, highlighting specific areas: governance, leadership, organization, and environment. Case studies detail the experiences of schools or districts with the specific intervention model.
