    The Educational Transformation Office collaborates with the Central, Region, and school-based teams to ensure our District's Priority Schools receive the appropriate support and attention to address students' academic and social-emotional needs. Through ETO, Priority Schools receive direct support but remain under the purview of the Region Superintendents. In collaboration with the regions, ETO works solely with Priority Schools to evaluate existing school systems and programs, and support schools with identifying corrective courses of action, and ensure the equitable delivery of high-quality instruction.
