Transforming Our Schools
The Green Bay Area Public School District has been actively engaged in a variety of efforts to transform our schools. 

Turnaround Partner (American Institute for Research) 
For the 2018-19 school year, the District contracted with the American Institute for Research (AIR) to serve as a Turnaround Partner. AIR’s primary focus is Washington Middle School, where AIR has been working with the building administration and staff to address identified concerns and areas of improvement. District administration are working closely with AIR in order to transfer skills and strategies to other schools to build capacity and strengthen all schools within the District.

Community Schools
Working with the United Way, the District has identified Howe Elementary Community School as the flagship community school for the area. As a community school, Howe Elementary has core partners to assist in ensuring the social, emotional, physical, mental and academic needs of students, families and the neighborhood are met. Brown County United Way will serve as the anchor partner, whose role is to assist the District in the development of Howe Elementary as a community school. The Howe Community Resource Center will serve as a lead partner providing the day-to-day support to assist families and the neighborhood to access community partner opportunities. The goal is to extend this model to other District schools.

Wisconsin Urban Leadership Institute (WULI) Learning Community
The District is entering year two of a statewide effort which includes the Big Five school districts (including Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha and Racine) as well as the Department of Public Instruction and the Urban League to build capacity with and among our school leaders. Working collaboratively, the primary mission of the WULI is to not only build capacity but also “to implement supports and interventions to turnaround schools most in need of improvement.” Leaders work together to identify issues and share research-evidenced best practices to turn around our most challenging urban schools. Year 1 participants will continue their learning and a second cohort of leaders will begin their time together in early August of 2019.
