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

Research findings

Important questions answered quickly.

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