In 2017, the Barr Foundation launched Engage New England (ENE), an initiative that provides a unique opportunity for local education agencies to plan for and develop innovative schools designed to serve students off track to high school graduation.
SRI Education, research partner for the ENE initiative, captured the schools’ experiences with academic case conferencing through interviews of school leaders and staff members, student focus groups, staff surveys, and a pilot of academic case conferencing observations.
This brief describes the approaches schools used to support academic case conferencing and their implementation of key practices.
