Research has identified certain key characteristics that allow schools to succeed. These characteristics are the focus of this toolkit. This toolkit is designed to provide Jamaican school leaders with information, strategies and resources to help improve their schools. It discusses what makes a school effective, identifies effective practices from Jamaican classrooms, and provides resources and guidelines to help school leaders adapt and adopt these practices to improve student outcomes in schools across the island. We know that, depending on their resources and needs, schools will make their own adaptations to the suggested approaches to building effectiveness features, but we reaffirm the importance of each of the featured characteristics in this toolkit in developing successful schools.
