1 Comprehensive School Improvement Plan Web Application Training
Accountability, Research and Planning Department Jefferson County Public Schools Shaping the Future

2 Training Agenda Advantages of CSIP format & web application
Overview and demonstration of web application Guided Practice (hands-on activity) Timelines Questions Training Objective: By the end of the session users will be able to navigate through the application, enter data and print a report

3 Planning Philosophy Planning can be: A Globe An Atlas A Roadmap
A To-Do List for the School

4 Plan as Globe

5 Research Summary Why aren’t plans effective as a change agent for school improvement? Not driven by school leadership Not embraced by school faculty Not fully implemented Lack of regular monitoring process Bottom Line: Neither number of type of strategies appear decisive for school improvement, leading to question of implementation 5

6 Research Summary When does it work? When are plans effective?
Faculty had greater input in the writing Plan discussed in weekly team meetings Linked to teacher growth plans Academic goal setting based on data at the school and classroom levels Source: Canwell, 2004; Langer & Colton, 2005; Mintrop & MacLellan, 2002; Reddekopp, 2007, Togneri & Anderson , 2003 Linking the teacher appraisal process to the school improvement plan (Reddekopp, 2007) -excellent written plan doesn't guarantee all staff will buy into goals Using teacher appraisal process, principal facilitates link between goals of SIP and each teacher’s individual goals Northgate HS, Georgia develop goals first based on student data, creates strategies then teachers adapt appraisal goals as they relate to achievement portion of plan (replaces teacher evaluation process) Quality teams – all departments divided among 5 administrators, meets monthly, group discussions about each teacher’s goals (success and struggles) Adminstrative walkthroughs looking for evidence of teacher’s focus on goals Academic goal setting is linked to data-based decision making Schools that show multiple years of improvement use data to make decisions and encourage teachers to use student learning data to make instructional decisions - benchmarking (Canwell, 2004; Langer & Colton, 2005; Togneri & Anderson , 2003) High performing schools focus on making decisions based on data at the school and classroom levels Students taught under mastery learning achieve as much as 1 standard deviation above students taught under conventional methods (Bloom, 1984) Students whose teachers used academic goal setting Achieved more than students whose teachers did not use academic goal setting Could state their own goals and were correct in self-assessing their progress toward reaching goal (Fuchs, Deno, Mirkin, 1984) 6

7 Purpose for the web based CSIP Application
The content and format of the CSIP is: Simple Useful Make it a “working” document from which schools can measure progress towards goals through benchmarks

8 Developing SMART Goals and Identifying Benchmarks

9 S.M.A.R.T. Goals Find a Partner
Write down what you think SMART stands for: S = M = A = R = T=


11 SMART Goals Specific and Strategic Measurable Attainable
Think through the entire goal – who, what, where, when, which, why – focus on priorities Measurable Concrete criteria for measuring progress Attainable Focus on most important Results-oriented Set realistic goals based on trends Timebound Set specific timelines for attaining goal. Reference: Conzemius, A., O’Neill, J. (2001) Building Shared Responsibility for Student Learning, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, Alexandria: VA

12 SMART Goals Goals should specify improvement targets by defining the performance level (“end-result”) you would like to accomplish. You should have in mind the specific tools or measures that you will use to monitor progress on each goal SMART Goal: By when, who will do what as measured by what SMART Goal Example: By June 2007, student attendance will increase to 94.7 as reported in JCPS pupil monthly attendance report

13 Goal Suggestions Schools should include both main goals and subgroup goals Main goals are centered around CATS goals and encompass strategies that apply to all students Subgroup goals for subpopulations include strategies that target the specific subpopulation Schools can use the goal calculator in the “planning tools” to enter previous KCCT academic data and goals for the next school year will be automatically generated

14 Goal Suggestions Schools should include both main goals and subgroup goals for subpopulations in their Reading and Math Components. Main goals are centered around CATS goals and encompass most of your school’s reading or math strategies (i.e. strategies that apply to all students). Subgroup goals for subpopulations include strategies that target the specific subpopulation and would not be included in the main goal(s)

15 Sample School CATS Scores
Reading 2007 Index Proficient/Distinguished 51% Novice % FRL Novice % FRL Proficient 32%

16 Activity 1: Develop SMART goal
Review the Data from Sample School Identify the target group (Who) Choose Novice or FRL Novice for your group Identify the attainable performance level (target) you would like to accomplish. (Calculation: Distance from 100 or 0; divide by 4; add to 2006 score) (What) Identify timelines for measuring progress and attaining the target (When) Write goal as a SMART goal

17 Things to Keep in Mind: Do’s and Don’ts for SMART Goals
Establishing Goals Do begin by reviewing current data trends before establishing goals Do let your goal drive your activities. Do ensure that all goals can be quantified and have a date and a measure associated with them Do think through the number stated in the goal. Is it a realistic number? Does it follow the trend data? Is your goal a SMART goal?

18 Benchmarking Assessments for Learning Benchmarking involves:
Frequent assessment of student performance Assessments for Learning Monitoring progress toward meeting goals Coinciding with the “implementation and impact” check Using results to improve instruction - periodic analysis of instructional and organizational effectiveness and uses the results to improve student learning 18

19 Assessment Overview Summative Assessments Used to measure goals
Assessments of Learning How much a student has learned at the end of course, semester, or unit Examples: CATS ACT SAT Final Exams Unit Exams Projects

20 Benchmarking Formative Assessments
Used to measure progress toward goal Assessments for Learning Helps teachers adjust instruction Examples: Quiz Homework Observations Checklists Student Work Mini-CATS like tests Multiple Choice Checks Learning Checks

21 Goal – Benchmark Mapping
Goal Focus Possible Benchmarks Content Index (i.e. Reading, Math) Classroom Assessment System (CAS) School developed scrimmage tests % Novice or % Proficient/Dist. Predictive Assessment Series (PAS) % Proficient/Dist. for Subgroups Attendance Monthly pupil attendance report Parent Involvement Parent-teacher conferences PTA membership Parent visits (school sign-in sheets) Suspensions Monthly suspension report

22 Benchmarking Activity
Form a small group of 3 or 4 or 5 Round Robin and share with the group the Benchmarking assessments you use in your school/district. What data does the benchmark provide? (i.e. Novice levels, Index scores, percentiles, etc.)

23 Purpose for the web based CSIP Application
The content and format of the CSIP is: Simple Useful Make it a “working” document from which schools can measure progress towards goals through benchmarks

24 Advantages to the CSIP Model
Provides built-in planning tools Measures progress towards goals Connects plan development & implementation Offers greater flexibility in adjusting plan Provides means for custom-based reports Provides built-in planning tools to assist in developing goals and benchmarks Allows for opportunity to measure progress towards goals Streamlines process between planning and reporting on implementation Offers greater flexibility in adjusting plan to meet school needs Provides means for custom-based reports through query functions 24

25 Improvement Planning Application V5.0
Improvement Planning Application (IPA) 5.0 is an electronic web application for Jefferson County Public Schools to enter and submit their Comprehensive School Improvement Plans electronically via the internet.

64 Lessons Learned Benchmarks are important
Quality strategies are even more important Implementation is critical

65 How we use benchmarks…

66 Next Steps Additional training on benchmarks Plan as “To-do list”
Teacher level plans Implementation rubric

67 Tips for Improving Implementation
Plan as “to do list” Chunk plan into meaningful time periods Review implementation and adjust on regular basis Teacher/team Level Plans Teacher develops goals/strategies for class Team meetings to identify common goals/strategies Common goals/strategies incorporated into school plan Team meetings around implementation issues

68 Keys for ensuring plan impacts school improvement:
Stakeholders contribute to all stages of planning process SMART Goals are based on data analysis Frequent assessment of student performance Limited number of strategies Strategies that are individualized Frequent monitoring of implementation Results are used to improve instruction Periodic analysis of instructional and organizational effectiveness 68

69 Opportunities to Use Application
