Culture of Universal Achievement and Success: A White Paper on the Granger Turn Around Model™


This white paper by Robert Bleisch, M.A., Principal of Castle Park Middle School, explores the Granger Turnaround Model—a school-wide, research-based, data driven Response-to-Intervention model built on four very specific principles of intervention (Timely, Targeted, Directive, and Systematic) and three core systems of academic excellence (Mandatory Attendance System, Mandatory Behavior System, and Mandatory Academic Support System). These three systems of academic excellence are greater than the sum of their parts and together, synergistically, help neutralize many of the poverty related barriers that affect school campuses and prevent academic success.
