System Implementation and Monitoring Regional Session DAY ONE Fall, 2013 Resources are available at sim.abel.yorku.ca
K-12 System Implementation and Monitoring (SIM) Context and Purpose Focus: Family of Schools Supervisory Officers and elementary and secondary principals from the family The work is system implementation and monitoring of the Board Improvement Plan for Student Achievement (BIPSA) and School Improvement Plans (SIP) within the Family Of Schools (FOS) Funding of teacher release for K-12 SIM learning
Where does SIM fit with other Student Achievement Division (SAD) initiatives? K-12 Literacy & Numeracy Leaders Grade 4-10 TransitionsK-12 System Implementation & Monitoring Goal: Improve student learning, close gaps in literacy and numeracy by: -investigating learning, teaching & instructional leadership -mobilizing knowledge through differentiated support for all learners Support students performing lower than level 3 by exploring: -transitions -collaborative inquiry stance -evidence-based instructional processes -Interpreting student voice and engagement within the inquiry - Co-learn about implementation and monitoring within the FOS - Build and mobilize knowledge through outside and in-the- room thinking - Build our capacity to monitor our progress and impact. - Consider how educator and student mind-sets impact our actions. - Support coherence building by connecting the work of the province and district with the family of schools.
You told us … Continue the break-outs Give time for board teams to plan Topics for Discussion: Using the School Effectiveness Framework, as a tool to support reflective practice and enhance improvement planning Building and sustaining a culture of change Aligning the work of Student Success with board priorities Engaging in effective monitoring Using qualitative data to inform BIPSA and SIP planning Building understanding of effective instruction of mathematics K-12 Exploring the role of the SO in planning the professional learning of Principals
Goals Inquire and co-learn about implementation and monitoring of mathematics within the family of schools Build and mobilize knowledge through outside and in-the-room thinking Build our capacity to monitor our progress and impact Consider how educator and student mind-sets influence our actions Support coherence building by connecting the work of the province and district with the family of schools
Agenda Day 1 Provincial Picture Assessment of FOS learning needs in mathematics School Effectiveness Framework supports Effective practices from educators and researchers Jo Boaler and the mindsets related to mathematics
Looking Back TEAM DISCUSSION In the areas where you’ve seen improved student achievement within your family of schools, what have you learned? What are your FOS structures and processes for: supporting principals principals supporting teachers building and sharing effective practices implementation and monitoring
Provincial Areas of Focus Primary reading Students with Special Education Needs Mathematics
Grades 3 to 6 to Applied Mathematics (EL) 9 Number of students in the cohort: 29,122
Grade 3 & 6 Regional EQAO Results For the EQAO results for your region see the separate folder entitled: EQAO Achievement_SIM by region
Fewer Students Reaching the Standard The proportions of students that rose to meet or exceed provincial standard in Grade 6 having not met standard in Grade 3 has declined over time.
Provincial Areas of Focus - continued Student Achievement in Applied Courses (OSSLT and Mathematics) First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Children and Youth in Care Mathematics
Grade 9 Academic and Applied Mathematics Regional EQAO Results For the EQAO results for your region see the separate folder entitled: EQAO Achievement_SIM by region
Provincial Math Action Plan Focused interventions with specific students (every grade 1 – 9 student below level 3) Engagement in identifying, intervening, and monitoring at every level of the system At least one math qualified teacher per division Increased number of teachers with math AQ Professional learning in math content and pedagogy Know every student deeply and instruct them using a wide variety of strategies. Relevant math across the curriculum in every subject K-12
What did your monitoring tell you? TEAM DISCUSSION Thinking about your work in mathematics last year in your family of schools, discuss the following: What was it that students needed to know and do? How do you know that students were successful? What were you monitoring? What was the impact? How do you know?
Professional Learning Cycle
System Monitoring Through Implementation Part 1 In triads Part 2 Whole team Where are you in this process as a family of schools in mathematics? What evidence supports your thinking?
How one team monitors their work Several versions (different lengths) of this video showing the work of the system team from Hastings and Prince Edward DSB are on the SIM site
Jo Boaler Video and Discussion Are there concepts or ideas that students/parents/staf need to know? How will you implement these?
Lunch 12:00 -12:45
BRINGING OUR FOS THINKING INTO THE ROOM
FOS Focus Is there an explicit and shared articulation of an urgent mathematics student learning need within your FOS? What specific curriculum areas need to be addressed? Is there an explicit adult learning focus connected to the student learning need? Is the adult learning focus narrow enough to allow for in-depth exploration? What professional learning and monitoring structures need to be in place to ensure impact?
Provincial Math Action Plan Focused interventions with specific students gr. 1-9 Identifying, Intervening and Monitoring at every level of the system At least one math. qualified teacher per division Increased number of teachers with math AQ Professional learning in math content and pedagogy Know every student deeply and instruct them using a wide variety of strategies. Relevant math across the curriculum
Information about the items on this slide are available at sim.abel.yorku.ca Prodigy Dreambox Learning Articles: Direct Instruction Successful Mathematics Achievement is Attainable Why Mental Arithmetic Counts Putting Students on the Path to Learning
Read what John Hattie and Gregory Yates say about worked examples on pages 151-152
Angela Duckworth - Grit How does this impact on your mathematics plan?
Contextualized Learning Activities Example of relevant math across the curriculum See video on SIM site What are the strengths in your FOS? What will you need to work on? Add to your plan any actions that you will take related to the Provincial Math Action Plan.
School Effectiveness Framework Turn to page 28 - Numeracy in the Classroom and page 29 - Students How might these indicators and samples of evidence influence the work in your family of schools? Add to your plan.
Readings TEAM DISCUSSION In your practice of facilitating adult growth and leadership development, is there something from these excerpts that you might consider more deeply? Add to your plan.
Provincial and District Supports How does the professional learning provided by the district support your family of schools focus? How can Student Achievement Division (SAD) initiatives support your family of schools focus? Add to your plan.
Jo Boaler Jo Boaler’s new website: youcubed.org - helpful tasks - videos - materials
Jo Boaler Are there concepts/ideas that the students in your FOS need to know? How will you implement these ideas to support the culture of learning in your FOS? How do the educators in your FOS reflect these ideas in their work?
