1 Washington State Career- and College-Ready Standards Implementation Transforming Professional Learning Systems for Reform: Common Core and More District Network Project (WA-TPL) A Gates Foundation funded opportunity for Washington School Districts District Orientation June 2, 2014 WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014

2 “The dramatic shift in teaching prompted by the common core will require practical, intensive, and ongoing professional learning – not one-of “spray and pray” training that exposes everyone to the same material and hope it sticks” ~Stephanie Hirsh, Learning Forward (2011) “Current teachers must receive extensive professional development on the Common Core standards, curricular materials, and strategies on teaching that now require students to delve deeper and develop critical thinking and analytical skills that previous standards did not adequately address…” ~ National Association of State Boards of Education (2011) WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014 2

3 “…today, however, there is little systemic attention to professional learning as a core strategy for educator reform…” ~Stephanie Hirsh & Joellen Killion, Learning Forward 3 WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014

4 Learning Targets for Today Participants will gain an overall perspective of statewide standards implementation approach and WA TPL project. Participants will learn about specific project objectives related to their role as lab or critical friend district. Participants will gain an understanding of the project evaluation and data collection process (Standards Assessment Inventory 2 (SAI2)) Participants will discuss next steps: June - October WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/20144

10 State Context TPL Project Implementing Career- and College-Ready (CCR) Learning Standards… WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201410

11 Washington’s Vision for Education Every Washington public school student will graduate from high school globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21 st century. Class of 2011: Bridgeport High School WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201411

12 Aligned System – Common Language and Common Vision WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ District-directed professional learning structures Assessment & Accountability Systems (SBAC) Student and School Success Professional Learning Aligned to Standards Educator Effectiveness Systems (TPEP) Aligned Federal and State Programs Regional Support Systems (ESDs) National Board Certification BEA Funding and Policy Recommendations Comprehensive Mentor & Induction Programs (BEST) Pre-Service Programs Basic Education Act: State Learning Goals McCleary Court Decision & Fully Funding Basic Education Career and College Ready State Learning Standards for ALL Students (CCSS/NGSS)

13 Implementing Career- and College- Ready Standards in Washington State Our Vision: Every student will have access to CCR standards through high quality instruction aligned with the standards every day; and every educator is prepared and supported to implement the standards in their classrooms every day. Our Purpose: To develop a statewide system with resources that supports all school districts in their preparation of educators and students. WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/

14 Bringing the CCR System Together WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014 All students leave high school career and college ready https://wacore2col m/Project+Overvi ew https://wacore2col m/Project+Overvi ew ault.aspx?PageID=1 ault.aspx?PageID=1 rofDev.aspx rofDev.aspx 14

15 Moving toward Career and College Ready Standards WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ “These standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business.”  CCSS-M, page 5

16 Career and College Readiness for EVERY Student What role do district leaders and structures have in supporting and sustaining professional learning to support every teacher and ultimately, every student? WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/

17 Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCR Standards Implementation in WA WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ Prongs: 1. The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators) Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided a strong foundation on which to build; HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in the content. 2. The How: System “Remodeling” Belief that successful implementation will not take place top down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…” Belief that districts across the state have the conditions and commitment present to engage wholly in this work. Professional learning systems are critical 17

18 The “What”: Key Content Shifts – ELA, Math, Science Shifts in ELA 1. Building knowledge through content- rich nonfiction and informational texts in addition to literature 2. Reading and writing grounded in evidence from the text 3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary These apply to content area (social studies, science, and technical subject) teachers as well as to English teachers. WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ Shifts in Mathematics 1. Focus : fewer topics focused on deeply in each grade 2. Coherence : Concepts logically connected from one grade to the next and linked to other major topics within the grade 3. Rigor : Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to real world situations, and deep understanding of mathematical concepts Shifts in Science 1.The NGSS Reflect the Interconnected Nature of Science through Focus, Understanding, and Application of Content 2.The Science Concepts in the NGSS Build Coherently from K– Science and Engineering are Integrated across K–12 in the NGSS. RESOURCE HANDOUT

19 The “What” - Power of the Shifts Know them – both the what and the why Internalize them Apply them to decisions about Time Energy Resources Conversations with parents, students, colleagues, partners This effort is about much more than implementing the next version of the standards. It is about preparing all students for college and careers. WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201419

20 WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ What do all students need to know and be able to do as a result of the CCSS? 2. What do the adults in the system need to know and be able to do to support all students? 3. How do we design a professional learning system to support them? The “How”: System Remodeling 20

21 The “How”: Connecting Multiple Avenues, Providers, and Directions for Professional Learning WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ Including: School Districts Higher Education Education and Educator Associations Private Partners Washington

22 CCR Implementation – through a district, building, and classroom lens WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ Phase 1: CCR Standards Exploration Phase 2: Build Awareness & Begin Building Capacity Phase 3: Build State & District Capacity and Classroom Transitions Phase 4: Statewide Application and Assessment Ongoing: Coordination and Collaboration to Support Implementation

25 WA-TPL Vision The project will focus on enhancing critical state and regional-level infrastructures and capacity for sustained, results-driven, standards-based statewide and regional professional learning so… School district and building leaders have the knowledge and skills to create the conditions necessary for every educator within their districts to increase their instructional capacity to make the instructional shifts that new Career- and College-Ready learning standards entail. WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201425

26 Theory of Action (Professional Learning in the Learning Profession) WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/ Standards-based professional learning 2. Changes in educator knowledge, skills, an dispositions 4. Changes in student results 3. Changes in educator practice “Effective professional learning enables educators to develop the knowledge, skills, practices, and dispositions needed to help students learn and achieve at higher levels.”

32 Primary Project Focus To enhance critical state and regional- level infrastructures and capacity School district and building leaders will have knowledge and skills to create conditions necessary for every educator within their districts to increase their instructional capacity to make the instructional shifts that new Career- and College-Ready learning standards entail Sustained, results-driven, standards-based statewide and regional professional learning WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201432

33 Project Outcomes (separate handout) Outcome Description 1. Student Achievement 80% of students (~75,000) in 33 WA-TPL districts will demonstrate growth on state and district-identified ELA, math, and science assessments 2. Professional Learning Opportunities and Resources Administrators, teacher leaders, and classroom teachers from 33 WA-TPL districts and at least 90 non-WA-TPL districts actively engage in and benefit from professional learning grounded in the shifts within CCR standards. XX% report professional learning resources to be effective in building capacity with educators and teams at the local level. 3. Structures and Processes to Support Professional Learning A framework is created (or modified) for the state and districts to utilize to develop comprehensive systems of professional learning that includes a vision and definition of professional learning that aligns with research-based practice, standards for quality and expectations for results of professional learning, policies that support equity of access to professional learning, and resources to develop individual, school, team, school system capacities needed to ensure success for all educators and their students. 4. Leadership State WA-TPL partners and members of WA-TPL leadership/design team demonstrate established infrastructures that show increased capacity to lead and support high quality, standards-based professional learning. Five hundred-four district, school, and teacher leaders actively engage professional learning opportunities and networks through WA-TPL and regional professional learning that supports a comprehensive professional learning system for across 33 WA-TPL districts and within 150 WA-TPL schools. 90% of district, building, and teacher leaders report participation has a positive impact on their practice and professional learning structures/processes/practices will be sustained. 5. Data WA-TPL state and district partners access, analyze, and interpret student, educator, and system data from multiple sources to make decisions about professional learning and that uses formative and summative, qualitative and quantitative student, educator, and system data to articulate professional learning needs and support system improvements. 6. Culture 100% of WA-TPL state partners and districts demonstrate alignment of behaviors and actions grounded in trusting relationships at all levels that are focused on student and educator learning and collaboration.
