No major social institution has been under more scrutiny or under
such pressure to change than the American public school system. One
of the most recent initiatives in educational reform has been
district takeover of public school systems. A takeover is the
commandeering of day-to- day control of district operations and
decision- making in an unsuccessful or failing school district.
Despite attempts by state departments and governments to takeover
failing school districts, success is often short-lived and
unsustainable in the absence of the takeover. As a result, efforts
to either abandon takeovers as an effective reform strategy or to
create long-term sustainable results need to occur. A public school
district in Logan County, West Virginia is one of only three school
districts reported nationwide to have sustained- success. Seven key
characteristics that contributed to the sustainability of this
district takeover were identified. Only through a relentless
pursuit of sustained-success will answers be found to solve some of
the problems facing public education in America.
