What is the System of Great Schools?
The Strategy: A System of Great Schools (SGS) Strategy is a district-level problem solving approach that:
- seeks to understand school performance and community demands and use that information to make decisions about expanding what works, replacing what doesn’t, and pursuing all possible options to create high-quality, best fit schools;
- requires systematic thinking and willingness to pursue all possible options, regardless of governance type, to create the set of school options that families want and deserve;
- empowers educators to design and lead campuses or networks of campuses around coherent, specialized school models; and empowers families to make choices that best fit the needs of their children.
