Sharing insights into what makes schools successful is an important aspect of the Just for the Kids Campaign. We invite you to review the group's Core Practice Framework, the foundation of which is built upon eight years of study of more than 500 schools across 20 states. The Framework identifies the core practices important to district leaders, school leaders and teachers.

Just for the Kids plans to feature several school success stories on its website so that other school communities can learn from what "higher performing" schools are doing to improve student achievement.
