An Early Report on Comprehensive High School Conversions: Eagle Ridge High School
Source: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
This report describes the early stages of the conversion of one of three large Washington State high schools into several small learning communities. Each of the schools received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation under one of three different programs: the Washington State Achievers Program, the Model School Initiative, and the Model District Initiative. The report offers insights and recommendations to other schools in the early stages of conversion, such as having strong principal leadership, using data to make the case for change, making the process inclusive and transparent, and balancing structural and teaching issues.
