CASDA and the UAlbany School of Education NYKids Program are partnering to offer Capital Region school districts a unique opportunity to leverage a vast body of research, data and case studies identifying the practices of odds-beating schools to spark school improvement. The process will begin with an intensive Elementary and Secondary Teams Summer Institute on July 25 and 26th. During this two-day conference, schools will use a self assessment of their current practices, receive an individualized analysis and engage with research highlighting strategies that support improved opportunity and achievement for all students.


Leadership teams will develop a collaborative planning and implementation process to guide the successful application of these practices and ignite meaningful, lasting school improvement. 


Participants will: 

  •  Learn to work as a team and build leadership capacity for system improvement. 

  • Compare practices in your school to those in odds-beating schools to identify high leverage change ideas. 

  • Connect data to system improvement goals. 

  • Develop action plans and measures to assess progress. 

How Will CASDA and NYKids Work With Your School Team? 

  • Refine planning, collaboration and team-building strategies. 

  • Help implement current research on promising practices.

  • Increase capacity to gather, analyze and leverage a variety of data. 

  • Participate in two follow-up sessions during the school year. 

  • Dr. Wilcox will be available during the academic year to answer questions and support implementation.
