Collier County Public Schools (Florida) faced two key challenges in carrying out planned strategies to turn around its lowest performing schools: (1) allocating the limited time available during the school day to support students through additional instruction and targeted interventions, and (2) rewarding the highest performing teachers—those who contribute most to student achievement growth—in its low-performing schools. In response, Collier sought to collaborate with the district’s teachers union to increase the operational flexibility of SIG schools to address these challenges.
