6 Kirkwood District Framework
Kirkwood Strategic Plan Planning Form School Improvement Plans: November 2008

7 Procedures for Developing CSIP: Written Document
Kirkwood School District's Strategic Planning Process A Coordinating Committee, including 15 members of the School District staff and 15 members of the community, met June 12-14, 2007 to frame the new strategic plan. Their work included (see Framework): Beliefs Mission Objectives Parameters A strategic planning process has been used by Kirkwood Schools since 1991 to invite wide-spread participation in district directions and initiatives. Three different strategic plans have been written and implemented, each lasting a 5 year period resulting in notable district improvements and programs (see History). The last plan was concluded in May 2007. Eleven committees are now being convened to develop action plans for each of the eleven strategies. An action plan is a step-by-step outline of what needs to be done to implement the stated strategy. Committees will work through December to draft their ideas. Any Kirkwood School District staff member, parent or community member is welcome to join a strategy committee. For each strategy, there will be action plans written that detail how we might implement the strategy. The committee writing action plans determines how many action plans are needed. In our last strategic plan, one strategy had only 5 action plans and one strategy had 30 action plans. Each action plan includes one objective and a series of step-by-step actions that are recommended in order to reach the objective and contribute to reaching the strategy (see Action Plan Samples).

8 Procedures for Developing CSIP: District Perspective
Plan revised every 5 years Parties involved in the development and revision- Coordinating and Strategy committees 15 staff/ 15 community members Co-chaired by one staff and one parent Over 200 people including staff, parents and community members Open participation

9 Procedures for Developing CSIP: District Perspective
Data used includes: Surveys, student achievement scores, budget, facilities (everything available is reviewed) Annual update meetings with original 30 coordinating committee members to evaluate and monitor plan

10 Procedures for Developing CSIP: Building Perspective
Retreat committee hears ideas from the strategy groups (recommendations regarding goals with action plans) Site level creates SIP teams (administrators, staff, parents) School vision- set goals School has to show what strategy it would connect to (strategic plan) School submits school improvement plan

16 CSIP Goals, Objectives, Strategies, and Action Steps
Example of Action Plan Strategy: We will continuously collect and analyze student data to maximize instruction that meets the unique needs of each student. Objective: Collect, organize, and store data Action Steps: Collect qualitative and quantitative data on a continuous basis. Evaluate district assessments to: avoid redundant collection, assess reliability Provide appropriate data collection tools for: screening, diagnosing, progress monitoring, mastery assessment Store data in a centralized location Review data collected to ensure accuracy Continuously assess the process and tools of data collection Build regular time into schedules for data collection

17 Data Used in Developing the Plan
MAP scores Qualitative data (surveys) Tungston District common assessments Teacher observations DRA SRI Aims Web

18 Explanation of Federal Grants, Technology Plans, & ePeGS

19 Methods of Evaluating & Monitoring: Building Perspective
Prioritize goals Shrink gap between current reality and vision Retreat committee revisits and revises

20 Methods of Evaluating & Monitoring: District Perspective
Annual update meeting Original 30 committee members Then individual administrators from each building involved Monitored by committee updates and administrator check-ins/meetings (monthly)

21 Strengths of CSIP: District Perspective
Built on collaboration Ever changing to fit the needs of the district Leads all stakeholders towards common goals

22 Strengths of CSIP: Building Perspective
Builds consistency and continuity across the district Living and breathing document Many stakeholders involved

23 Strengths of CSIP: Our Perspective
Connection between district and individual building plans Multi-year plan Process included many members, administrators, teachers Building level plans are extremely detailed and focused Represents their values and beliefs

24 Weaknesses of CSIP: District Perspective
Plan could always be stronger but at this time we are very pleased with the plan we have. Always will be the challenges of funding, student achievement expectations and changing personnel Was unaware that the 2009 plan was not on the website, did not know the reason for this

25 Weaknesses of CSIP: Building Perspective
Many obstacles during the five years Shifting personnel Economics Change in Board of Education members

26 Weaknesses of CSIP: Our Perspective
District Improvement Plan is not included in the eBook Lack of explicit alignment to budget Lack of explicit alignment from strategic plan and school improvement plans plans are not posted on webpage

27 Recommendations for Kirkwood
Continue to share through eBooks Create clear connections between strategic plan and school improvement Clear and measurable timelines for reaching goals Clear explanations of funding and money expenditures
