Last Thursday, October 28th, the National Network of State School Improvement Leaders (NNSSIL) held a webinar, “Supporting Systemic Change in High Schools,” that focused on School Improvement Grants (SIG). Participants included Angela Denning from the Arizona State Department of Education, Lisa Long and Michael Dunbar from Pima Partnership High School in Tucson, Arizona, and National High School Center Director Joseph Harris. Participants learned more about the preliminary findings of the SIG high school landscape across the country and discussed experiences from their early implementation of SIG so far this year. To find out more, the Webinar can be accessed in its entirety.

The National High School Center’s blog, High School Matters, which ran until March 2013, provided an objective perspective on the latest research, issues, and events that affected high school improvement. The CCRS Center plans to continue relevant work originally developed under the National High School Center grant. National High School Center blog posts that pertain to CCRS Center issues are included on this website as a resource to our stakeholders.
