Our new set of instructional videos, “Legacy: Effective Schools” is...helping teachers and administrators create ideal learning environments to foster student achievement best practices.

The question “what makes an effective school?” has been the subject of constant query over the years, and the fact that educators have yet to arrive at a definitive answer speaks to just how tough an issue it is. Despite ongoing challenges, though, student achievement best practices can be within reach for those with the right tools.

“We certainly don’t have all the answers,” says School Improvement Network president, Chet Linton, “but we have many of them, and we are proud of the role we have taken on as we’ve worked to resolve the issues that challenge educators. Our new set of instructional videos, “Legacy: Effective Schools” is designed to continue down that path, helping teachers and administrators create ideal learning environments to foster student achievement best practices.”

The “Legacy: Effective Schools” professional development videos describe student achievement best practices, outlining correlates that have consistently emerged in the most effective school environments, correlates include those listed below:

·     A safe and orderly environment
·     A climate of high expectation for success
·     Instructional leadership
·     Clear and focused mission
·     Student opportunity to learn and stay on task
·     Frequent monitoring of student progress
·     Home/school relations

While these correlates are important, they are meaningless unless all educators are committed to carrying them out. School improvement plans help schools in their journeys to become more effective, and schools that use them will see improvements in the areas of curriculum and assessment, quality and equity practices, school empowerment, and student achievement best practices.

To watch “Legacy: Effective Schools” and other educator development videos, visit and sign up for a free 30-day trial of PD 360, School Improvement Network’s premier professional development platform.
