Profiles of Dissemination

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is profiling schools that have engaged in thoughtful dissemination work. These profiles include schools who may have received a rating of "Exceeds" for Criterion 4: [1] Dissemination, in their Summary of Review, or schools that have received the most recent federally funded, Charter School Dissemination Grant, a competitive grant to assist Massachusetts charter schools to work with district schools to disseminate best practices. Each profile provides summary information about the practice or activity, web-based and other resources to support implementation, and contact information.
