In 2000, the Hamilton County School District in Chattanooga, Tenn., teamed up with a community partner to transform eight of the 20 lowest-performing grade schools in the state of Tennessee. The county built leadership teams to establish staff development and incentive programs to attract and retain talent. After the transformation, third graders' performance on state exams increased from 53 percent (2003) to 78 percent in reading and language arts (2008) and from 50 percent (2003) to 72 percent (2008) in math.
