The Alliance for Excellent Education and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) held a briefing on April 26 to discuss the role of school leaders in creating a culture of excellence that has allowed students to succeed at great levels. The MetLife Foundation–NASSP Breakthrough Schools project identifies, showcases, and recognizes middle and high schools that are high achieving or dramatically improving student achievement while serving large numbers of students most at risk of dropping out.
The four schools participating in the panel discussion have been recognized by the Breakthrough Schools project for exemplifying the core areas of collaborative leadership, personalization, and access to a rigorous and differentiated curriculum for all students.
We would like to thank U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, honorary host of this event.
