High Schools That Work and Making Middle Grades Work is all about raising student achievement, with research and data that prove it works!
Program Scope: High Schools That Work (HSTW) is the first large-scale national effort to engage states, districts and schools in improving student success for the world of work and for further education. HSTW is a framework that provides direction for schools to improve academic and career-technical instruction. Making Middle Grades Work (MMGW) is the middle grades component of the HSTW school improvement initiative.
Ohio is the 22nd state to adopt the HSTW school-improvement model in partnership with the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). MMGW was adopted by Ohio in 2002. Participating states and schools agree to accelerate student achievement by creating the supportive framework required for teachers and school leaders to implement HSTW goals, key improvement conditions, and practices.
