What are School Actions?

School actions are comprehensive and bold strategies districts can take to create, redesign or restart schools that meet the unique needs of their communities. 

All School Actions and models include the following components: 1) Effective Schools Framework-aligned school model; 2) selection, adoption and implementation of High-Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM) and implementation of Research-Based Instructional Strategies (RBIS); 3) high-impact tutoring, and; 4) extended day or year

There are six School Actions types and models from which School Action Fund applicants may select according to their specific community needs. The Center for School Actions is here to support districts and schools to understand and assess their options. You can begin by using the links below to learn more.
