  • This change is causing dramatic gains in student achievement

    Check back later this month for the next must-read post!] What if we could empower our teachers to turn student assessment into a process of learning instead of a focus on measurement? Further, what if this mindset change led to an increase in student achievement on tests? That's exactly what is happening at Trailside Middle School in Loudoun County, Virginia; at high schools in Gaston County Schools, North Carolina; and at a few other pioneering classrooms around the country where I have had the opportunity to work with innovative educators.

  • Va. communities among 100 fastest-growing in the U.S.

    Loudoun County gained more residents in 2016 than D.C., Montgomery County or Prince William County - each of which grew by thousands of people - and remains one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, according to new Census estimates released this week. The entire D.C. metropolitan area grew by more than 53,000 residents, slightly slower growth than the region experienced in 2015, but helped by a birthrate more than double the death rate.
