In monthly site visits to colleagues' schools, superintendents and other school district leaders pool their knowledge and experiences to seek ways for improving each school district's internal systems for student learning. The networks are based on a "medical rounds" model involving tours of regional classrooms to observe teaching practices, followed by group debriefs where each group's collaborative expertise helps diagnose issues raised by other superintendents.
