In 2009, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) put Marshall Metropolitan High School on academic probation. In 2011, the Marshall staff implemented Pathway to Accelerated Student Success (PASS), which consists of three credit recovery programs: Daytime, Extended Day, and the PASS Institute.
Now, 90 percent of PASS Institute students finish high school in a year or less, and Marshall Metropolitan High School is off academic probation.
From 2011 to 2015, PASS provided thousands of CPS students the opportunity to recover credits, meet graduation requirements, and continue to postsecondary education. In this webinar, we will review Marshall's proven practices of relationship building, peer-to-peer mentoring, and FuelEd online courses and wraparound services. Together these elements have evolved into a powerful, integrated system that gives students opportunities they never thought they would have.
CPS cited Marshall "A turnaround school that has revitalized its curriculum, culture, and climate, and is showing clear gains as a result. Students receive the supports necessary to be academically successful."

Over the past decade, numerous research reports have concluded that current teacher professional development and certification processes are outdated and ineffective. The latest report, The Mirage, from TNTP, suggests that despite spending nearly $18,000 per teacher per year (or $67 billion nationwide) on teacher development efforts, teacher improvement is relatively infrequent and not tied to district interventions.
In this webinar, Daniel Weisberg, CEO, The New Teacher Project, will be interviewed by Joanne Weiss, former chief of staff to former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, about the key insights of The Mirage report, where the field of educator professional learning is headed, and what it means for districts to ask fundamentally different questions about what great teaching means and how to achieve it.
Upon registering, attendees may submit questions to be addressed in the conversation, and live Q&A will be held at the end.
