Weakest schools: audit findings now public

KDE has now posted the full reports from the audits of ten persistently low performing schools and the five districts that include those schools.  In those documents:
  • Six of ten principals were found to lack the capacity to lead the changes their schools will need.
  • Seven of nine councils were found lacking--and one had already been removed.
  • One of the five districts was found to lack the capacity to lead the needed changes.
  • The transformation option was recommended for four schools, and restaffing recommended for  five.  "Turnaround" was recommended for one, slightly puzzling since the relevant law does  not list that as one of the four possible interventions.
Here's a chart showing the results for each school:
