Abstract
Despite great interest by school district leaders in scaling up comprehensive school reform models, there are relatively few studies from which to draw insights into directions for district initiatives that hold promise in increasing school-based instructional capacity to improve student learning outcomes. The papers in this symposium address this issue, specifically the influence of the current accountability environment on local efforts to improve student learning outcomes.
