Of every 10 ninth graders who start high school… 7 will graduate from high school on time… 4 will immediately enroll in college… 3 are still enrolled as a sophomore… 2 will graduate from college on time. The Leaky Pipeline Source: National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, 2004
You can’t ease into excellence It demands high levels of effort and energy and motivation and passion in addition to content knowledge. I like to think of it as a mission of the heart. What does excellence look like?
Characteristics of high performing schools Clear and shared focus High standards and expectations Supportive learning environment High levels of collaboration and Communication Emphasis on Professional Development Curriculum and Instruction aligned with state standards Effective leadership Closely monitored teaching and student progress High level of community involvement
Use appropriate data to drive decisions Create a culture of data use and equip teachers with the tools to access, analyze and use data Drink in your data- don’t drown in it.
Aldine Texas We change the entire master schedule probably two or three times a year. I’m always putting in new courses and creating new sections for classes that are needed. Principal, Middle School

Bridging Richmond’s Continuous Improvement Process Identify the specific goals, variables, indicators and benchmarks. Collect and aggregate data on indicators. Analyze the data using appropriate quantitative, qualitative, or mixed- method procedures for the purpose of determining gaps between current data and baseline data, and between current data and benchmarks. Identify program features of factors that may have an impact on performance on the indicators. Review the literature for best practices and make recommendations for improvement to current programs. Pilot the new procedures and re-start the process for continuous improvement, with possible changes to benchmarks.

Do I truly believe it is possible to create and sustain schools in which literally all students will be highly successful? Does my school provide clear standards for mastery of academic content? Are the teachers committed to and capable of high- quality teaching?
What responsibility do I have for the achievement gap? What are three best practices I want to refine for the 2010-2011 academic year?
