Turnaround for Children began its work in Washington, D.C. in 2010. Since then, it has expanded its relationship with DCPS to include districtwide initiatives, such as staff trainings and the School Climate Advisory Committee. In 2016, Turnaround established a partnership with KIPP DC to provide training and consulting systemwide.
This year, Turnaround is partnering directly with four DCPS and two KIPP DC schools, serving more than 2,100 students and 230 adults, and providing consultation, training and support for educators in schools across the city.
