1Student Learning Objectives Circleville’s SLO JourneyPrepared by Jonathan Kuehnle, TIF CoordinatorPresented September 2012
2We’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
3Win-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
4SLOs 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.
5Circleville’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: $
6Summer 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.
7State of Implementation Circleville’s local SLO team is leading PD for teachers throughout the month of September.Replicate summer process & share Excel template.
8Monitoring 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!
9Monitoring 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.
10Monitoring the Work—How? CCS Teacher EvaluationDanielson framework—already aligned with OTES.Use SLOs in the goal-setting section.Credentialed Evaluator and OTES accountability.
11I 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.
