Undefeated: Inside Five Baltimore Turnaround Schools that Refuse to Fail

EdScale is thankful for the opportunity to partner with leaders and teachers turning around schools in Baltimore. We are humbled to be “the lone consultant hired by The 100% Project” according to the article.

In addition, the article includes our favorite description of an implementation progress meeting: “The schools’ instructional leadership team meetings—teacher leaders from different grade levels and subject areas—make the Joint Chiefs of Staff look like amateurs.”

Specifically, EdScale supported The 100% Project schools to:
• Develop, facilitate, and lead twice a year retreats to reflect on progress and plan
• Establish school plans with shared goals and strategies, school-specific goals and strategies, student-focused progress metrics, and clear milestones for implementation
• Facilitate regular progress monitoring meetings at each school
• Facilitate learning walks every 2-3 weeks with Principals, focused on strategic plan implementation areas for insight/feedback
• Provide advice and feedback to The 100% Project leadership
