Information for Case Studies

Case studies-

Each summer SPN produces case studies about the model schools that have been identified to present at the national Model Schools Conference. These case studies present qualitative and quantitative data and best practices. Organized around the dimensions of the learning criteria, this research provides a comprehensive look at that leadership the instruction and the innovations that have led to significant student growth. Case studies align to other resources on SPN’s website through the schools they feature and the focus topics such as rigor/relevance and quadrant D leadership. These case studies are typically between 9 to 12 pages long and are fully downloadable to SPN members. Schools seeking innovative approaches and best practices use these case studies as Windows in two similar schools that are achieving enviable results. SPN case studies also help facilitate conversation among schools as they seek out peers from whom to learn. SPN members are able to access five years of case studies from over 150 schools.
