Details Of $536,000 Contract Reveal Plans For Statewide School Improvement

Though the Alabama department of education has barely begun intervening into 27 of Montgomery’s chronically low-performing schools, details of a $536,000 contract are shedding light on plans they have to improve other schools as well.

The $536,000 contract with Massachusetts-based Class Measures, Inc., specifies the company will conduct 38 school reviews, create action plans from those reviews, and train state department officials in the review methods.

School reviews are nothing new, but Class Measures specializes in Ofsted school reviews, which, according to Sentance, is the only international credential recognized as being high quality.
