Overview


"Getting It Done describes in clear and helpful detail what leaders of successful high-poverty and high-minority schools have done to promote and sustain student achievement.

It follows two celebrated books by Karin Chenoweth: “It’s Being Done,” which established that the work of educating all children is possible, and How It’s Being Done, which examined the structures and processes necessary to support academic success. Getting It Done turns to the crucial issue of school leadership, exploring how school leaders have promoted unprecedented levels of school and student achievement. A book that focuses on real leaders—and on the knowledge and skills that they have employed on behalf of heightened achievement—Getting It Done will be essential reading for school leaders, and for all who believe that a successful education can be attained by all students."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Getting It Done, the third book in Chenoweth’s trilogy (along with It’s Being Done and How It’s Being Done), is an excellent resource for any school struggling to find the right formula for achieving academic success without regard to student demographics or the zip codes in which they live. It provides principals with specific practical strategies that are adaptable to a variety of settings.” — Larry Leverett, School Administrator

Getting It Done: Leading Academic Success in Unexpected Schools will prove invaluable reading for principles, superintendents, and anyone else charged with a leadership responsibility or role in a K-12 school setting.” — Midwest Book Review
