Restructuring A process through which a district or school alters the pattern of its structures (vision, rules, roles, relationships) in order to produce substantially different results in student achievement.
Site-Based Decision Making Site-based decision making is a process for decentralizing decisions to improve the educational outcomes at every school campus through collaborative effort by which principals, teachers, campus staff, district staff, parents, and community representatives assess educational outcomes of all students, determine goals and strategies, and ensure that strategies are implemented and adjusted to improve student achievement.
Key Ideas from SBDM Improve educational outcomes SBDM is to be used for enhancing the learning outcomes of all students at every campus. Collaborative effort All stakeholders will work to improve student achievement
Key ideas (cont.) Assess, Determine, Ensure Participants in the SBDM process provide direction by giving input and advice and share responsibility for results. Student Achievement The primary purpose for which schools exist.
Key Ideas (cont.) Process Implies an on-going, developmental nature, not a one-time project or activity. Decentralizing Decisions Appropriate and authorized decisions should be made as close to the student as possible.
Site-Based Management Site-based management is a system designed to increase autonomy in decision making at the school level. It is a system designed to increase the participation of stakeholders in the decision making process.
Assumptions about Change Those people affected by a change should be involved in making that change. Possibilities for change are increased if the SBDM team is functioning well. Those in formal positions of authority must support the change, or it has little chance of sustained success.
Keep in Mind Never involve people in activities which affect the welfare and livelihood of others without the necessary prerequisite training for the activities.
Campus Planning The campus-level committee shall be involved in the areas of planning, budgeting, curriculum, staffing patterns, staff development, and school organization.
Campus Planning A principal shall regularly consult the campus-level committee in the planning, operation, supervision, and evaluation of the campus educational program.
Campus Planning The campus-level committee shall hold at least one public meeting per year to discuss the receipt of the annual campus rating. District policy must ensure that systematic communications are in place to receive broad-based community, parent, and staff input.
Campus Planning Each year, the principal, with assistance of the campus level committee, shall develop, review, and revise the campus improvement plan for the purpose of improving student achievement of all student populations with respect to the AEIS indicators and other appropriate measures.
Why Plan? Establishes Direction Focuses Action Increases Motivation Reduces Costs by Reducing Risks Heightens Communications Fosters Creativity
Critical Decisions Where are we now? Where do we want to be? What strategies will get us there? How will we implement our strategies? How will we know when we get there?
Planning Tasks Identify and collect data Ensure that data is appropriate, accurate, consistent, and objective Analyze data and turn data into information Provide data and information on which decisions are to be based Provide options and alternatives so decision makers can choose Monitor and report progress toward goal Provide data and information for evaluation
Decision Making Tasks Make decisions on global view of the site, as well as special, local needs. Monitor progress toward goal and call for adjustments as appropriate. Validate achievement and/or programs.
