Building a Movement
One of AES’s primary goals is to connect previously independent education stakeholders in order to find common ground and work together to advocate for the use of a core set of practices to turn around underperforming schools.
The purpose of this collaborative effort is to create sustainable momentum for the building of high quality learning environments as a cornerstone of California’s efforts to improve under performing schools.
AES works with key education stakeholders including representatives of the California Department of Education, the Association of California School Administrators, non-profit organizations, student and faculty groups. AES also participates in legislative activities and conferences around the State to broaden its alliances.
- In March 2015, AES’s Turnaround Principals Workgroup presented at the California Association of African American Superintendents and Administrators (CAAASA) annual conference focusing on Access to Excellence for Students of Color.
- In January 2014, one of the principals from AES’s TPWG, Gloria Ervin of San Juan High School in San Juan Unified School District was nominated as a principal of the year by the Association of California School Administrators.
