Urban District Community of Practice
Research Alliance Quicktabs
Research alliances connect practitioners, researchers, and policymakers around regional education challenges. Alliances are tasked with addressing these challenges through regional research, technical assistance, and dissemination projects. Regional Educational Laboratory Midwest supports eight alliances.
Focused specifically on the needs of urban districts, this community of practice intends to measure and test continuous improvement efforts. This community of practice will work to identify and develop tools to improve the feedback that school- and district-level personnel receive about teacher practices and student outcomes.
