As chancellor of the Michigan EAA, Dr. Covington is in the process of designing a system for turning around the lowest five percent of schools in Michigan.

About School Improvement Network
Founded in 1991 by teachers, School Improvement Network has spent more time researching and documenting the best practices in education than any other organization in the world.

TES outlines a step-by-step process to improve teacher practice, and arms educators with a set of powerful tools that can be used to complete each step. Research shows that districts and schools that use the tools in the Teacher Effectiveness System produce better teachers, and as a result experience dramatic increases in student achievement, driving up student test scores by as much as 30% in a single year. School Improvement Network works with thousands of schools and districts in every state and around the world and has visited over 3,500 classrooms to document best practices in action.
