Tapping into external networks is a powerful way for schools, districts, states, and others to expand their knowledge base about particular improvement efforts. These networks provide a venue in which the findings from research and the wisdom of practice can be shared. Along with time to reflect on actions taken and adjustments needed, these groups provide needed encouragement and input for the continuous improvement process.
