Member of Southern Regional Education Board
For more than 30 years, the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) has partnered with states, districts and schools to identify and implement strategies that empower young people to put what they learn in the classroom to work in the real world. Our efforts began in 1987 with High Schools That Work (HSTW), SREB’s premier school improvement design. HSTW is a proven, comprehensive approach to creating learning environments that empower youth to identify their goals, earn credentials and degrees, and embark on careers. Since 1987, we’ve continuously refined the HSTW design and our related school improvement services. Individually, these services address specific needs and areas. When adopted as part of the HSTW design, they represent a complete, multi-faceted approach to school improvement.
