Educators were asked about the five common school structures schools and districts use to influence the use of research when making decisions about classroom practice, school-based decisions, and district-level decisions:
1) Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)
2) Instructional leadership teams
3) instructional coaches
4) research-practice partnerships
5) district research office
This report, Structures for Research Use in Schools, indicates how educators are using the structures in place to disseminate research.
