Green Dot Public Schools is a charter management organization (CMO) based in Los Angeles that was created in 1999 in response to concerns about poor academic results within the LA area. Since that time, Green Dot has opened 10 successful charter schools and, with impressive results, embarked on a goal to have a greater impact on students by entering the school turnaround effort. This brief examines one particular aspect of Green Dot’s school-turnaround approach — its intensive effort to improve special education and related services for students with disabilities. The new brief from CST describes the CMO’s improvement planning for special education services, as well as the Key Factors credited for driving Green Dot schools’ success.
