OFFICE OF STUDENT AND SCHOOL SUCCESS: SERVING SCHOOLS STATEWIDE 6
Probably the most important and the most difficult job of an instructional leader is to change the prevailing culture of a school. The schools culture dictates, in no uncertain terms, the way we do things around here. A schools culture has far more influence on life and learning in the schoolhouse than the president of the country, the state department of education, the superintendent, the school board, or even the principal, teachers, and parents can ever have. One cannot, of course, change a school culture alone. But one can provide forms of leadership that invites others to join as observers of the old and architects of the new. The effect must be to transform what we did last September into what we would like to do [this] September. Roland S. Barth as cited in Hallinger, 2003 CHOOSING BOLD ACTION 7
HIGHLIGHTS OF INITIAL ACTION PLAN Encourages principals and teams to reflect on their current SIP and identify strategies and approaches that will move the needle for all students Provides opportunity to focus on a few strategies aligned with high-leverage actions Forms basis for on-going improvement work Aligns with the Student and School Success Indicators Will link directly to the final Student and School Success Action Plan developed after the Needs Assessment 9
Step 1. Identify Strategies and Approaches from Current SIP First, consider these Reflective Questions: How were the strategies in the SIP selected? What is the expected impact of these strategies on student learning? How were data on student achievement used when creating the SIP? How were data on instruction used when creating the SIP? If we had the needed funds, what would we do to ensure equality of outcome for all of our students? 11
Step 1. Identify Strategies and Approaches from Current SIP (continued) Now determine: What needs to be done to adjust the SIP or what actions should we implement that will have the most impact as the new year begins? What data do we need to help us decide and how do we get those data? 12
Step 2. Identify targeted number of strategies 13 Based on reflections in Step 1, identify a limited number of strategies that signal to the school and community that significant change is underway. Anchor strategies in high-leverage actions embedded in the following principles: Provide strong leadership Use data to inform instruction Strengthen the schools instructional program Establish a safe and supportive school environment. High-Leverage Actions Signal Change
