The Jim Boyd Effective Schools Project
Tarleton State University's Effective Schools Project (ESP) has evolved into one of the nation's largest
and longest running school improvement ventures. With the Effective Schools research as its foundation,
ESP is a school improvement network linking the Tarleton faculty and campus leadership teams from over
seventy Texas schools in an ongoing study and dialogue designed to enhance school effectiveness.
Effective Schools Conferences Effective Schools Conferences are at the heart of ESP. This annual se-
ries of conferences and seminars provides members with current research and theories, as well as practical
methods and strategies from the nation's most prominent educators and reformists. The conference series
is organized around a school improvement theme broadly associated with one or more of the correlates of
Campus Planning Retreat In March, ESP leadership teams are invited to attend a planning retreat.
During the retreat, school leadership teams are able to evaluate their school year to date, to reflect on the
research and other information received at ESP conferences, to refine their campus improvement plan, and
to exchange ideas, goals, and triumphs with other campus teams.
The ESP Journal The Journal of the Effective Schools Project is the official publication of ESP. The
journal is dedicated to the dissemination of information, ideas, and research among the participants in
ESP, as well as other interested educators. Published annually, each issue of the journal focuses on a par-
ticular theme, but consideration is given to non-thematic articles.
