Research-to-Impact Practices

Three students in a classroom

The Networked Improvement Community for Students with Disabilities brought together 10 public charter school communities to improve learning experiences, environments, and outcomes for Black and Latino students with disabilities experiencing poverty.

Using the tools of continuous improvement — the science of getting better at getting better — educators developed more than 20 evidence-based practices, which demonstrated positive outcomes on a wide range of student achievement measures, as well as attendance and postsecondary transitions.

The practices are organized into five collections that summarize relevant research and provide step-by-step instructions, case studies from schools in the network, and templates and implementation tools for educators to use in their classrooms.
