Ohio Improvement Process - OIP Willoughby-Eastlake Schools – District Leadership Team (DLT) May 2010
What is The Ohio Improvement Process (OIP)?
Not one more thing to do The OIP is designed to pull all of your district initiatives together and "narrow the focus" on fewer goals at a deeper level.
Current Initiatives for improving student achivement 1. Bridges to Success 2. Study Island 3. RTI/Co-teach 4. Olweus 5. Formative Assessments 6. Differentiated Instruction
The OIP Process- a 3 year plan
Why is the Willoughby- Eastlake School District participating in The Ohio Improvement Process? Collective Decision Making Systemic Approach Ensure HQPD Efficiency & Effectiveness Good to GREAT!
Collective Decision Making Collective decision making promotes shared leadership. (We are in this together from teachers, bus drivers, administrators) TEAM approach Either we are pulling together or we are pulling apart. Theres really no in between. Kobi Yamada Together Everyone Achieves More
Systemic Approach We are ONE district and every school and every employee in the district will focus on the same two goals. All good performance starts with clear goals. Author Unknown
Ensure HQPD Focused Research Based Structured Sustained (Follow Through by Leadership Teams) The quality of a persons life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor. Vince Lombardi
Efficiency & Effectiveness Focus Team Work Work Smarter Efficiency is doing things right, Effectiveness is doing the right things. Peter Drucker
Good to GREAT! We are good…. we want to be GREAT! Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. Christian Frederick Hebbel The greater the loyalty of a group toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals. Rensis Likert
How was the DLT selected? Twenty administrators and teachers were invited to volunteer to be on the DLT. Each building was represented by either an administrator or teacher. Selection was then based on compiling the most diversified group possible with faculty from all grade/subject levels. In order to ensure WETA representation, the WETA president was invited to participate.
Using Ohios DECISION FRAMEWORK (DF) Sorts and organizes district and building data into specific data sets 1.) Student Performance Data 2.) Curriculum, Assessment, Instruction / Educator Quality / PD 3.) Leadership / School Climate / Family, Student, and Community Involvement 4.) Resource Management Data helps identify major concerns and causes Leadership teams answer questions about selected data and make data-related decisions Organized decision-making process produces clear needs assessment
Using data to make curriculum and instructional decisions The OIP uses data from multiple sources to make decisions about the current initiatives we are using in the schools and classroom.
Pre-Assessment Item 1: Formative assessments are formal and teachers record data. True False
Pre-Assessment Item 2: Formative assessment today will change my instruction tomorrow. True False
Pre-Assessment Item 3: I understand what formative assessments should look like in my classroom. True False
Pre-Assessment Item 4: Most teachers in my school use formative assessments regularly. True False
Pre-Assessment Item 5: Use of common formative assessments will create more work for teachers. True False
Academic Goal By , Willoughby-Eastlake Schools will ensure that all students will meet the AYP targets in all subgroups measured by State tests.
Academic Strategy 1a – Common Tools for Instruction and Assessment Collaboratively develop quality, common, easily accessible tools for instruction and assessment.
Academic Strategy 1b – Use Formative Assessment Teachers will use formative assessment data and provide responsive instructional strategies for students who need intervention, further practice, or enrichment. (L) (P) (M)
Academic Strategy 1a – Common Tools for Instruction and Assessment Adult implementation: 100% of teachers will participate in creating and using common formative assessments. Student implementation: 100% of students will utilize formative assessments to realize what they know, what they need to know, and how to get there.
Academic Strategy 1b – Use Formative Assessment Adult implementation: 100% of teachers will provide specific and timely feedback so that students know what correctives will achieve their goals. Student implementation: 100% of students will monitor their own progress toward the learning targets using assessments.
Climate Goal By , Willoughby- Eastlake Schools will create an environment that engages and supports all students, resulting in a decrease of 10% in student discipline occurrences.
Climate Strategy 2a – Positive Behavior Support Develop district wide positive behavior support initiatives where students are empowered and actively engaged in the academic and school community to increase student success.

2.a.2 Develop a system for addressing misbehaviors without interrupting the learning of students. Response To Intervention (RTI) Model Design and develop a continuum of options designed to meet student needs/behavior/social skills with PD Response to Intervention Model (RTI)
2.a.2 (continued) Review and modify district policy on academic penalties for behavior problems Develop a behavior intervention plan through collaboration to include transition between grade levels and buildings Investigate the use of flexible scheduling

Goal Implementation Timeline Climate Goal: : Develop district-wide behavior support initiatives : Focus on transitions between grades and buildings : Design a continuum of options designed to meet student learning needs Academic Goal: : Creation & use of common formative assessments : Utilize formative assessment data and provide responsive instructional strategies for students : On-line storage and access of common formative assessments
Ownership Through Shared Leadership Shift focus from a single individual to a team that can function as purposeful communities Distribute key leadership functions Align and focus work across the system using few district goals Ensure effective leadership is exercised at all levels of the system
Why are YOU here? Setting performance targets aligned with the district goals Monitoring performance against the targets Building a foundation for data-driven decision making on a system-wide basis Designing system planning and focused improvement strategies, structures and processes Facilitate the development and use of collaborative structures Brokering or facilitating high quality PD consistent with district goals Allocating system resources toward instructional improvement The role of the BLT is:
