6 66 Know and be able to do School Improvement = Problem Solving Problem Solving = Process Bernhardts Four Lenses Demographics Student Learning School Processes Perceptions

7 77 Story

8 88 Area of Concern

9 99 Targeted Concern There were approximately 15 students out of total student population of 1,000 that were dropping out of school when they reached their 16 th birthday.

10 10 Generate Hypotheses: Answer the Why?

11 11 Hypotheses Generated Young men leave school. Low income students do not value education. Students who get discipline referrals want out. The lower the GPA, the more likely one is to walk. Parents didnt finish high school, children wont. Single parent families and similar find it difficult to shepherd students through school. These students come to us with poor test scores. These students earn too few credits. These students are frequently tardy or leave early.

12 12 Determine, Collect, Disaggregate and Analyze Needed Data Gender GPA SES Discipline Parental Background Family Makeup Entry Test Scores Credits Attendance No Yes

13 13 Develop Solution Criteria 1. Diploma/GED (Rigor) 2. On Campus Program (Relationships) 3. Quick Successes (Relevance) 4. Non-traditional School Day (Relevance) 5. In-depth Knowledge of/Caring for Students (Relationships)

14 14 Investigate Solutions Brainstorm: What ideas do we have? SBR: What does research suggest? Best Practice: What are other schools doing?

15 15 Select Best Match to Criteria: Late School Diploma/GED On Campus Program Quick Successes Non-traditional School Day In-depth Knowledge of/Caring for Students
