1 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow Master Scheduling for Maximizing Course Selection Mike Neubig

2 Purity Student Purity The percentage of students in each SLC specific class who are actually in that community: should be above 90% in grade 9 should be above 80% in grades 10-12. Teacher purity- Teachers in each SLC should teach the majority of their courses within the SLC and have 3 hours per week of common planning time. 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

4 Curriculum Analysis The size of the SLC Box (student time spent in each SLC) depends upon how much a school is able to: prescribe vertical course sequences reduce core course levels and assign teachers by SLC - not by department. 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

5 Consider These 9th Grade Math Courses Math Foundations Algebra A Algebra A and B Algebra 1 Honors Algebra Honors Geometry 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

6 Algebra 1 Honors Algebra 1 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow vs. these...

7 Segmentation by Expectation Providing multiple labels to students based upon past performance and other data: Teacher recommendations Grades Attendance/discipline Test scores in order to place students into a tracking sequence. 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

8 De-Tracking SLCs are designed to provide equal opportunity within each community, by providing less segmentation and more flexibility to move between course levels. 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

9 Consider these grade 11 – 12 Science courses.... Biology + Honors Chemistry + Honors Ecology + Honors Geology + Honors Physics + Honors AP Biology AP Physics 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

10 vs. these.... Grade 11 All SLC - Chemistry or Physics (or Honors) Grade 12 All SLC - Ecology, Geology (or Honors) AP occurs as global class across all SLCs Note: Biology is not offered as a repeat -- must take in summer school, online, or in alternative setting. 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

11 Key Elements of Scheduling SLCs 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

12 Philosophy A school must first address the philosophy/culture within the school in order to create a belief system that ALL students can learn and ALL teachers should be expected to teach high level curriculum. 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

16 What does the Nashville data say? 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

17 Result of Smaller Environment? 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

18 Process 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow The BIG shifts:

19 Its All in the Process 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow A transparent process in which a clear vision of each Career Academy is defined, cohorts are scheduled as separate schools (course tags created for each academy), branding is built in student sign up visuals, and academy purity is protected throughout the process.

20 A typical example... 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow A school has 2200 students – 5 Career Academies 3 sections of AP English and History traditional enrollment 4 sections of Honors Geometry 2 ELL teachers 3 teachers who have traditionally taught all of Honors/AP A traditional process to place teachers based upon what they want to teach or who has traditionally taught the advanced classes and what period they want off for prep. Does the cumulative advantage exist here?... is it pre- decided who will make it?

21 SLC Scheduling Issues... 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow

22 Rules for Courses in Personalized Learning Programs 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow 1. Have no more than three levels (or options) 2. Are able to be taught by one teacher. 3. Occur in similar time periods as other SLC classes. 4. Common to almost all students. 5. Have similar enrollment numbers to other teamed courses. 6. Integrate well with other courses.
