4 Is this us? Schools with a record of failure typically exhibit signs of dysfunction such as: discipline problems, tardiness and absenteeism, a lack of collaboration, low morale, and strained relations with staff are some common features of failing schools. These schools usually serve the most-disadvantaged students, who come to school with a variety of unmet social needs. Turning them around requires an ability to respond to some of these needs and to transform the school culture. Greene County Transformation Team 2012
