1 Student Learning Objectives Circleville’s SLO JourneyPrepared by Jonathan Kuehnle, TIF CoordinatorPresented September 2012
2 We’re doing S.L.O.s so we’re not S.O.L.! Why?We’re doing S.L.O.s so we’re not S.O.L.!In a word…OTES.We are required to do SLOs (or other Student-Growth Measures) in
3 Win-Win-Win: A great opportunity Thanks to OTIF, in , we are held harmless to experiment with and phase-in SLOs.If we miss our targets, there is no penalty.If we make our targets, performance-based, strategic-compensation payouts are awarded.Either way, we are better prepared for the real deal in
4 SLOs incentivized in Goal #2 of our Local Award Model Circleville’s PlanSLOs incentivized in Goal #2 of our Local Award ModelWhy? SLOs build capability through Professional Development (PD)—this is the focus of Goal #2.Metrics—Teachers must design, develop and implement two (2) SLOs per all guidelines.
5 Circleville’s Plan, Continued SLOs incentivized in Goal #2 of our Local Award ModelFocus—All teachers are eligible; we target non-VA teachers b/c they currently have nothing to populate the Student- Growth side of OTES. VA teachers do.Award—non-VA teachers: $ VA teachers: $
6 Summer Support Austin SLO Study Trip ODE/OTIF Mini-Grant Circleville’s #1 takeaway: SLO Excel template.#2: We’re not in this alone; many shared experiences.ODE/OTIF Mini-GrantCollaborative consortium with OTIF partner schools.Used ODE guidance to design and develop locally based team and individual SLOs.
7 State of Implementation Circleville’s local SLO team is leading PD for teachers throughout the month of September.Replicate summer process & share Excel template.
8 Monitoring the WorkCircleville teachers’ primary concern: Accountability.Use existing processes and protocols to support the work.Teachers are already overloaded—don’t add new food to a full plate!
9 Monitoring the Work—How? OIPDLTBLTTBT with 5-Step Process & FIP.We are required to do this work anyway. TIF is a nice “extra”.The process works. CCS added 7 LRC Indicators after 1 year of implementation ( : 17/26 and : 24/26).Collaborative support and collegial accountability. 1 Team SLO and 1 Individual SLO help everyone work toward the same goal. It focuses the work.
10 Monitoring the Work—How? CCS Teacher EvaluationDanielson framework—already aligned with OTES.Use SLOs in the goal-setting section.Credentialed Evaluator and OTES accountability.
11 I Wanna See the Spreadsheet! Formula: Required Growth = (100 – BOY Score)/2. Result is added to the BOY score to set each individual student’s target.Example: If a student earns a 66 on the BOY test, then (100-66)/2=1717+66=83EOY target for this student is 83.AISD teachers like it b/c it’s simple (“No Tiers” formula), it auto- calculates, and it sets a specific target for each student at all levels.
