    Abstract: The purpose of the Study of School Turnaround is to 
document over time the intervention models, approaches, and strategies 
adopted and implemented by a subset of 60 schools receiving federal 
School Improvement Grants (SIG), Title I Section 1003(g), provided 
under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. To this end, the 
evaluation will employ multiple data collection strategies, including 
telephone interviews with school principals, district administrators 
and state officials; site visits to case study schools; teacher 
surveys; and collection of fiscal data. Specifically, the study will 
conduct telephone interviews with building principals and will 
administer teacher surveys in 60 schools, over three years. This set of 
60 SIG-awarded schools will include three nested subsamples: One set of 
25 schools in which the study team will conduct in-depth case studies 
over three years, and two sets of 10 ``special topics'' schools in 
which the study team will collect interview, focus group, and survey 
data on topics of policy interest over a period of two years. The study 
will produce annual reports, accompanied by more focused research 
briefs on special topics related to the change process in the nation's 
lowest-performing schools.
