Edwatch: Southern Regional Education Board

Organization Name: Southern Regional Education Board
Company Line: SREB helps states focus on what works in both policy and practice. We work hand in hand with policy-makers such as state legislators and education agency officials as they implement policies to improve student achievement, raise high school graduation rates and boost college completion. These sustained partnerships have built a knowledge base we draw on to advise state leaders and provide information they need to create sound policies and take effective action. SREB brings together member states to forge consensus and work together on initiatives that would not be possible alone. SREB member states have adopted specific goals to lead the nation in education improvement, and SREB analysts track and report progress, state by state, on important benchmarks for reaching them. We conduct research, collect and analyze data, publish reports, and recommend action on current and emerging issues. SREB also works directly with public schools and educators to improve classroom teaching and learning, career/technical education, online education and school leadership. Some SREB programs help teachers, professors and state education officials realize the promise of technology. Others work to increase the number of minority faculty and researchers; broaden capacity for nursing education; and enable students to reduce out-of-state tuition, find online programs and navigate the path to college.
Bottom Line: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation provides funding to support four projects designed to advance the design of sound and effective systems of educator effectiveness across their 16-state region. The projects will benchmark the design of state systems of teacher effectiveness with the Foundation’s nine MET principles; examine state efforts to improve observation practices as part of teacher evaluation; convene state and district leaders to learn from the experiences of select IPS districts; and develop a plan for a longer-term effort to demonstrate what instruction aligned with the Common Core State Standards looks like in the classroom - 2013.
