Christine Campbell, Center for Reinventing Public Education
This report from the Center on Reinventing Public Education concerns the expansion of portfolio school districts around the United States. Portfolio school districts are districts that aggressively close low-performing schools, steadily open promising new schools, and publicly share performance data. This report recaps the 6th annual Portfolio School District Network Meeting, which took place in January 2012. As a result of the meeting, major themes emerged regarding the challenges and innovations in portfolio districts.
