In recent years, rapid school improvement — known most commonly as school turnaround — has emerged as the chief focus of dramatic and systemic efforts aimed at giving students better schools. To assist states, districts, and schools in leading or managing these efforts, in 2017 the Center on School Turnaround at WestEd (CST) developed Four Domains for Rapid School Improvement: A Systems Framework. That framework identifies four areas of focus that research and experience point to as central to rapid and significant improvement: turnaround leadership, talent development, instructional transformation, and culture shift. Within each domain, the framework also identifies three critical practices for taking action.
during needs assessment, indicators serve as the objectives against which to consider prevailing practice (Corbett & Redding, 2017). Results from this mapping in the needs assessment stage inform the plan, helping leaders decide, for example, where to focus initial versus subsequent efforts or whether to focus more tightly on one or two particular domains versus other domains.
