Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education

Arizona Department of Education’s School Improvement and Intervention Section is working with University of Virginia’s Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education team in collaboration with the Southwest Comprehensive Center at WestEd to provide School Turnaround Specialist training.  This collaboration also includes school, district and state teams from Nevada, Colorado, Utah and New Mexico. 

The University of Virginia School Turnaround Specialist Program (UVA-STSP) is offered by the Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education (PLE), a unique partnership between the Darden School of Business and the Curry School of Education. The UVA-STSP thus draws upon and combines the most innovative thinking in business and education to address the challenges of education leaders charged with turning around our nation’s lowest performing schools.
