Leaders from the Council of Chief State School Officers visited Montana recently to learn about Superintendent Denise Juneau’s Schools of Promise program that aims to raise achievement and expectations in some of the state’s lowest-performing schools, all of which are on Indian reservations.

CCSSO is looking to Montana for guidance in developing an equity plan that other states can replicate.

The organization of school chiefs began their annual policy forum discussion with this video.
