One Year into Turnaround: How CCSD Schools Have Performed

This year Clark County School District implemented an ambitious plan to turnaround five of its worst performing schools.

The plan included radical changes in the classroom and curriculum as well as the replacement of many teachers, administrators and staff. Has it succeeded? We talk with two principals from turnaround schools about their first year and the challenges they face.
