1 What are they? Why use them? How do you write them? SMART GOALSWhat are they?Why use them?How do you write them?
2 Why SMART Goals?Goals are something that you want to achieve in the futureSMART goals assist in “getting focused” on what to focus efforts towardSMART goals help define exactly what the “future state” looks like and how it will be measuredSMART goals show others how their work “aligns” and relates to the focus of the school

5 How To Write SMART Goals Identify the “big, hairy audacious, critical-few” goals that need to be worked on (The Most Important Ones!)Consult the data!What are the greatest areas in need of improvement?Dig deep and get specific (disaggregate!)If all you did was spend time on the identified SMART goals, would the time be well-spent?
6 ITBS Language Total Scores This data shows “the big picture” of language proficiency …
7 This data “digs deeper” through sub test areas of language skills…
8 This data “digs deeper through desegregation” of student subgroup population proficiency …

10 SMART Goal Conclusion… During the school year, SAMPLE school will increase students’ proficiency in vocabulary skills in the non-proficient student subgroups as measured by the ITBS vocabulary sub test assessment (See targets below for each non-proficient sub group)Subgroup05-06 Actual06-07 TargetAfrican American52.4%57.4%American Indian50%55%IEP0%20%Free & Reduced58.7%64%
11 What SMART Goal would you suggest for this problem?
12 During the school year, Sample School will increase the respect shown by students as measured by a 15% reduction in office referrals due to “disrespect.”During the school year, Sample School will increase the respect shown by students.We will work on reducing office referrals.
13 Aligning School Improvement Plans to the District Strategic Plan SMART Goals
19 Improve This Goal…Every student will show evidence of one year of growth in mathematics each year in attendance.SPECIFIC - MEASUREABLE - ATTAINABLE - REALISTIC - TIME-BOUND
20 Original: Every student will show evidence of one year of growth in mathematics each year in attendance.SMART GOAL: During the school year, all students will improve their math problem-solving skills as measured by a 1.0 year gain in national grade equivalent growth from the to the ITBS math problem solving sub test.
21 Improve This Goal…Students will meet or exceed the district writing expectations as measured by the six-traits writing sample scoring.SPECIFIC - MEASUREABLE - ATTAINABLE - REALISTIC - TIME-BOUND
22 Rubric Target score at/above 3-4 Original: Students will meet or exceed the district writing expectations as measured by the six-traits writing sample scoring.SMART GOAL: During the school year, the number of first through fifth grade regular education students at Sample School improving their writing skills in targeted traits will increase 5% at each grade level (see chart below) as measured by the Six-Traits scoring rubric monthly grade level assessments.Performance TargetsRubric Target score at/above 3-4Grade LevelFocus Area% at/above% at/aboveKindergartenIdeas56%61%First gradeOrganization65%70%Second grade48%53%Third gradeWord choice74%79%Fourth grade84%Fifth gradeConventions62%67%
23 Improve This Goal…Students will show one year’s growth in Language Total as measured by ITBS.SPECIFIC - MEASUREABLE - ATTAINABLE - REALISTIC - TIME-BOUND
24 Original: Students will show one year’s growth in Language Total as measured by ITBS. SMART GOAL: During the school year, non-proficient students (as indicated by the ITBS vocabulary subtest) at Sample School will improve their vocabulary skills by 5% as measured by an increase in the percentage of students scoring in the “high” and “proficient” levels on the ITBS vocabulary assessment.
