Blueprint Schools Network (Blueprint) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to using a rigorous research-based framework to accelerate achievement and close the achievement gap in the nation ’s lowest-performing public schools. Blueprint was born out of an unprecedented analysis of more than 100 charter schools aimed at identifying what is driving achievement in the most successful of these schools. From this research, five strategies emerged as the drivers of school transformation in gap-closing charters: 1) Excellence in Leadership and Instruction; 2) Increased Instructional Time; 3) A No-Excuses School Culture of High Expectations; 4) Use of Data from Frequent Assessments to Improve Instruction; and 5) Daily Tutoring in Critical Growth Years. Blueprint brings the research on successful charter practices to life by implementing these five strategies in the context of the districts themselves.

Blueprint plans, implements, and monitors the progress of whole school transformation with the goal of dramatically improving the educational and life opportunities for all students.
