Elise A. Frattura and Colleen A. Capper present a unique, step-by-step guide for schools that incorporates a continuous accountability process to help schools avoid backsliding into poor practice. "Leading Beyond Equity and Accountability" addresses how to reach ELL and special needs students sometimes overlooked by NCLB practices. Each concise chapter describes typical school practices that traditionally fail to serve all students and illustrates research-based practice to help address this inequity. The authors offer ways to address the discrepancies between current practice and research and include scores of vignettes from the field. This book is ideal for school principals, directors of special education, and other district administrators involved locally in the implementation of integrated services for special education, at-risk, bilingual, and other Title I students.

"This volume is essential reading for any parent, teacher, school administrator, or academic within the field of education interested in working toward solutions to the problems plaguing our schools in the 21st century instead of maintaining the status quo. The ICS framework offers an empirically tested model for school districts to consider if they are seriously interested in substantive school reform." -- PsycCRITIQUES, January 2008, Vol. 53(5) "Not to be missed by either teachers or colleges catering to teacher education. This book goes well beyond the usual focus on testing results to help educators decide on program implementation." -- California Bookwatch, July 2007 "The implications for leadership are compelling. Teachers, principals, directors, and superintendents should include this book as a must-read as they advance equity and excellence for all children in their schools and districts." -- Barbara J. Sramek, Director of Special Education "The ICS model provides an opportunity for aligning educational programming within and across schools to provide a comprehensive PreK-12 experience that culminates in the results districts are looking for: students exceeding their potential and having the skills, knowledge, and long-term understandings that can be applied to real-world problems." -- Brian T. Pulvino, Director of Special Education
