7 An Innovation Configuration map: Clarifies what a new program is or isn’t; Defines quality clearly—what it looks like in use; Indicates the degree to which the innovation is being implemented; Informs support providers about how to best assist and support educators’ successful use of new practices; Provides a blueprint for learning, planning, and resources required for implementation; Determines significant actions that ensure successful implementation of the innovation to increase student achievement; and Provides, in the case of this IC map, a consistent guide for district leaders to begin and sustain efforts to implement the standards. 7

9  Phase 1 Next-Generation Learners  Phase 2 Next-Generation Instructional Programs Support (Program Reviews) The recent first release of data from the Unbridled Learning model included only the Next-Generation Learners component (Achievement [Proficiency], Gap, Growth, Readiness for College/Career and Graduation Rate). Schools have already received their Next- Generation Learner Overall Scores as targets for Proficient. In the fall of 2013, the second round of data from the model will be released, and that data will include both Next-Generation Learners and Next-Generation Instructional Programs and Support (Program Reviews). Unbridled Learning Accountability Model

10 The Program Review scores will have two roles in the summer of 2013: 1.Schools will see a publicly-reported Program Review classification (Needs Improvement, Proficient, Distinguished) for each subject (AH/PLCS/Writing). 2.Scores will provide a baseline for the combined accountability model that includes Next-Generation Learner and Next-Generation Instructional Programs and Support (Program Reviews) and the Overall Score as the target for Proficient in Program Reviews in Accountability

11  The ASSIST system is open and ready for use.  A Technical Guide for Completing and Submitting Program Review Reports for Kentucky Schools and Districts is posted to the PR webpage.  Data for Program Reviews MUST be entered in ASSIST by June 1,  During the school year , schools and districts should be working to improve baseline data. This gives schools an opportunity to make modifications in program areas that need improvement. ASSIST

24 24 CIITS District Highlight Marion County Public Schools As the school year opened they did training for all their elementary schools on an Introduction to CIITS. CIITS scavenger hunt, created by a Principal, was used with all elementary teachers in this initial training. CIITS initial rollout was focused on doing standards based lesson plans (700+ created district-wide) CIITTS "trainers" (early adopters) from elementary schools were paid and used to train HS teachers in February. These trainers emerged as early adopters and teachers passionate about CIITS rather than being selected as building level coaches. One Elementary focused on creating lesson plans and another focused on creating assessments (500+ assessments created district- wide). Elementary teachers will be doing unit design for Summer work. They love PD360! They are excited about the CIITS EDS module and will quickly begin using it when it becomes available.

26 As you plan for students with disabilities (SWD) as part of your district’s comprehensive improvement planning process, keep in mind that: Special education is a service, not a place SWD are regular education students who receive special education services The DoSE and special educators are critical partners as you develop specific and intentional plans for closing gaps for SWD 26 Comprehensive Improvement Planning and Students with Disabilities

27 DoSE and special educators play a critical role in district improvement planning by: Sharing successful processes around improvement planning for SWD. Reviewing and analyzing district data for SWD. Identifying root causes for the district’s performance through use of the investigative questions from the ASSIST Special Education Guidance Document. Suggesting activities from the ASSIST Special Education Guidance Document to close gaps for SWD. 27 Comprehensive Improvement Planning and Students with Disabilities
