In Every Child, Every Day, school and district administrators get a positive, innovative blueprint for achieving outstanding academic results through systematic change, in this case an innovative digital conversion initiative that provided every student and teacher with a laptop, despite a very modest resource base. This is the story of how Superintendent Mark Edwards led the Mooresville, N.C. Graded School District in its goal of creating a vibrant new learning environment for teachers and students. Each chapter gives readers a look at the visionary success factors that worked together to produce positive results–a culture of caring, digital resources, a relentless focus on data, leadership at all levels, and student-centered learning–and shows how their interplay drove, and can drive, academic improvement in virtually any school district. New funding strategies that address the budget issue combine with step-by-step replication tips to provide valuable inspiration and guidelines to help every school succeed on the digital conversion path to student achievement.
