School Pairing

  • Schools designated as Priority (and applicable Focus schools) will participate in the Pairing Program. This involves matching the school to a supportive partner to assist them in developing, refining, implementing and reflecting on the implementation of their school turnaround plans. These schools will participate in the pairing institute alongside their partner(s) to identify a focus area based on the seven turnaround principles, and plan their work for the year. Following the institute, the partners will implement their plans, ensuring site visits, classroom observations and check-ins. Ongoing reports of pairing activities and progress should be made to School Site Councils.
