    Accelerating student achievement: a resource for schools

    This resource can be used with the School Evaluation Indicators.

We share approaches schools have taken where progress was accelerated and schools were able to extend their practices to help more students succeed. Innovative schools focus on inequity within their student population, resulting in improved outcomes for Māori students.
