11 School Improvement Putting it All Together

12 The principal makes sure everyone understands the school’s mission, clear goals, and their roles in meeting the goals. The principal develops the leadership capacity of others in the school. The principal communicates the likelihood of success based on the plan and hard work. The principal models and communicates the expectation of improved student learning through commitment, discipline, and careful implementation of sound practices. The principal participates actively with the school’s teams. The principal keeps a focus on instructional improvement and student learning outcomes. The principal monitors curriculum and classroom instruction regularly. The principal spends at least 50% of his/her time working directly with teachers to improve instruction including classroom observations. The principal challenges unsound teaching practices and supports and monitors the correction of them. The principal celebrates individual, team, and school successes, especially related to student outcomes. The principal provides incentives for teacher and school accomplishment. The principal engages parents and the community in the improvement process. The principal offers frequent opportunities for the critique of the school’s progress and suggestions for improvement. The principal compiles reports from classroom observations showing aggregate areas of strength and areas in need of improvement without revealing the identity of individual teachers. The principal plans opportunities for teachers to share their strengths with other teachers.

15 S P U R

16 4A’s Data & Evidence Use Process This process can be applied to any situation. We use it in each stage of SPUR. Ask questions to focus the inquiry Analyze & Interpret Acquire Ask Arrive Gather data and/or evidence Make sense of the data Reach a decision

17 Ask: What did we learn from this experience to take forward? Ask: What do we want to improve? Ask: How are we going to make the improvement? Ask: How are we doing? Is it working? Acquire: outcome/ impact & demographic data Acquire: program/ perception data; research evidence Acquire: LT impact data; stakeholder reflection data Analyze & Interpret: strengths and weaknesses, root causes Analyze & Interpret: observations, sensemaking Arrive at a Decision: goal for improvement Acquire: classroom assessment data; implementation data Analyze & Interpret: observations, sensemaking Arrive at a Decision: strategy to implement; support conditions Arrive at a Decision: implementation adjustments Arrive at Decision: what to sustain; direction for next inquiry

18 Structured Dialogue Individuals 1.Make 3- 5 post it notes from the LKSD School Improvement/RTI/SPUR change cycle Table Groups 2.When all are ready, one person places a note in the center of the table saying, “This make sense to me because…” 3.Another person places a note connecting to the first saying, “This makes sense to me because…and it relates to the first one in these ways…” 4.Repeat the pattern, or start a new pattern. Sort and Elaborate

19 What are some ways the structured dialogue helped your thinking or allowed for group process? Under what conditions might you use, or not use, this strategy with your staff at your site? Structured Dialogue Reflect on the Process

20 Field Guide Dispositional Thinking Thinking and Acting Interdependently Effective and Timely Individual and Group Communication Gathering Information for Improvement and Innovation Commitment to Continuous Growth and Thinking with Precision Seeking Support and Feedback Metacognition and Flexibility

22 D 2-Seeking Support & Feedback Creates a professional system of support and actively engages in collegial networks. Teamwork is Essential. It allows you to blame someone else. “First and foremost for a team to function well there needs to be the desire by each principal to commit to participating and contributing fully as a team member.” Pg. 85 Field Guide

40 Hypothesis Building Cause Our middle grade reading students are not progressing as fast as we would like because they do not have the vocabulary needed to keep up with the academic expectations of their grade level Effect If we implement intensive school-wide vocabulary instruction in all classrooms so that all teaches are purposefully teaching the top 100 academic words for grades 4-6, we will see an increase in progress
