5 Overview: Purpose Tools Ideal School Process System Vision Mission Structures Core Beliefs

6 Activity # 1: Vision Reflection

7 NCSSE Standard 1 Understanding that schools ideally prepare students for an unseen but not altogether unpredictable future, the leader creates a climate of inquiry that challenges the school community to continually re-purpose itself by building on its core values and beliefs about its preferred future and then developing a pathway to reach it.

8 Vision & Mission Role of teachers & parents Role of public education Children & learning Core Beliefs

9 Education/Success for All???  What?  What happens if they don’t?  Who?  How much?  When will we know they have learned? -Richard Dufour

10 CORE BELIEFS "If we believe all kids can learn, how do we respond when they don't?" 1.We Believe All Kids Can Learn Based On Their Ability. 2. We Believe All Kids Can Learn If They Take Advantage Of The Opportunity To Learn. 3. We Believe All Kids Can Learn And We Will Accept Responsibility For Ensuring Their Growth. 4. We Believe All Kids Can Learn And We Will Establish High Standards Of Learning That We Expect All Students To Achieve. -Richard Dufour

11 Activity # 2: Core Beliefs a.Assign a note taker b.Using a “round robin” order complete the table below regarding your school’s shared core beliefs -Richard DuFour

12 -Vision instills an organization with a sense of direction (DuFour and Eaker, 1998, p. 62). -A shared vision is a shared image of what you desire your school to look like in the future” (Roberts and Pruit, 2003, p. 30). Your Core Beliefs should DRIVE your Vision:

13 VISION STATEMENT EXAMPLES  Ford Early 1900s: Democratize the automobile  Sears To be the preferred and most trusted resource for the products and services that enhance home and family life.  Avon To be the company that best understands and satisfies the product, service and self- fulfillment needs of women – globally.  School: All children are academically successful and prepared for a globally competitive work force.

14 Vision : …the power of a vision, a Dream, for an entire country…, MLK jr. video: -

15 Vision: Time: Talks about the organization's future Function: It lists where the organization sees itself some years from now. For employees, it gives direction about how they are expected to behave and inspires them to give their best. It shapes customers' understanding of why they should work with the organization. About: Outlines where an organization wants to be. Communicates both the purpose and values of the organization - ment

16 Whole Group Activity # 3: Sample Vision VISION STATEMENT FOR KHS: Our KHS learning community is passionate about educational success. All members of our learning community have responsibilities and share a collective commitment. Using the table on activity #3, discuss HOW the sample vision addresses the concepts of “time, function, and what the sample school is about”?

17 Vision … Start with the end in mind Leads to a transformation of systems & structures Specific, clear, shared ownership, buy-in Relevant, inclusive, transparent Consistent vs. Uniform CORE BELIEFS

18 Examples: A clear vision serves as a filter for the daily decisions staff members must make. “All decisions will benefit all involved stakeholders fairly and equitably.” How do I address Ms. Smith’s continual tardies? How will we address behavioral expectations? How will we address test scores? How can I get Billy engaged?

19 Our vision drives every process and all behaviors in our school. teaching learning staff development monitoring assessment budget climate

20 Activity # 4: Clarifying your Vision A. Working individually, take 3 minutes to answer the questions below. 1.Describe the school you are trying to create? 2.What would your school look like if it were a great place for students? What would it look like if it were a great place for teachers? B.Next choose a recorder and “round robin” your responses (do not repeat responses that have already been recorded). CONGRATULATIONS!!! Your list of words/phrases is the STARTER for your school’s New Vision!

21 From Vision to MISSION CORE BELIEFS Vision Mission

22 -A mission statement is a brief, succinct statement that explains the purpose for which a school exists (Roberts and Pruitt, 2003, p. 30). -Mission establishes an organization’s purpose (DuFour and Eaker, 1998, p. 62). -Qatar Education Foundation video: Mission Definition:

23 Shared Mission: What you Focus on EXPANDS!

24 Mission Statement A mission statement is the “how to” or action plan that helps a school achieve their vision. Plainly stated… What are we willing to do to get there???

25 Holding one another accountable… For these are ALL our children, we shall profit from or pay for whatever they become. James Baldwin

28 Whole Group Activity # 5: Sample Mission At Acorn School, we believe that student learning is the chief priority and all students can learn to their fullest potential. Students will develop their individual talents, critical thinking, and technology skills by being actively engaged in the learning process. Continuous commitment to improvement ensures that our students are well-rounded, self-directed, lifelong learners. By maintaining a safe and optimum learning environment, we provide the opportunity for students to be successful. Promoting high standards and expectations, teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission. Using the table on activity #5, discuss as a team HOW the sample mission addresses the concepts of “time, function, and what the sample school is about”?

29 Our School’s Mission

Working individually, take 3 minutes to answer the questions below. 1.What is your school’s fundamental purpose? 2.What happens in your school when a student experiences difficulty in learning? B.Next choose a recorder and “round robin” your responses (do not repeat responses that have already been recorded).
