This portfolio of resources represents the outcomes from action-research workshops held at conferences co-promoted by ADCS and EMIE in London and Manchester in March 2007.

It offers advice to local authority officers with responsibility for school organisation (in England), using actual experiences of those who have been involved in managing changes to schools.
