School Improvement Network announces today a new case study showing a Wyoming school district that closed the achievement gap and surpassed other districts in the state after using School Improvement Network’s PD 360.

Before they began using PD 360, Fremont County School District #1 (FCSD1) in rural Wyoming was on the bottom end of the achievement gap. The seven-school district had nearly 7 percent fewer students test advanced or proficient in math than other districts across the state. But while using PD 360 over the course of three years, FCSD1 improved from 55 percent advanced or proficient in math to 74 percent, a 19 percentage-point increase. During the same time, the other districts in the state rose less than two percent. Read the full report here.

School Improvement Network’s Educator Effectiveness System gives research-based, on-demand professional development for teachers through a library of over 2,000 video segments on 125 educational topics with nationally known education experts.
