The American School District Panel is the first nationally representative standing panel of school district and charter management organization (CMO) leaders in the United States. The panel provides an opportunity for superintendents and CMO leaders to share their perspectives and contribute to decisions about education policy and practice.

Research findings

Important questions answered quickly.

RAND Corporation and CRPE, two of the organizations behind the American School District panel, regularly run surveys and create in-depth studies of districts and CMOs. They do so in consultation with their advisory committee and their partners Chiefs for Change and Council of Great City Schools.
