3 Last Revised 5/27/11 3 Planning Philosophy Planning can be: A Globe An Atlas A Roadmap A To-Do List for the School

4 Last Revised 5/27/11 Plan as Globe

5 Last Revised 5/27/11 5 Research Summary Why arent 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

6 Last Revised 5/27/11 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

7 Last Revised 5/27/11 7 Developing SMART Goals and Identifying Benchmarks

8 Last Revised 5/27/11 8 SMART Goals Specific and Strategic 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., ONeill, J. (2001) Building Shared Responsibility for Student Learning, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, Alexandria: VA

9 Last Revised 5/27/11 9 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 2011, student attendance will increase to 94.7 as reported in JCPS pupil monthly attendance report

10 Last Revised 5/27/11 10 Goal Suggestions Schools should include both main goals and student group goals Main goals are centered around KCCT goals and encompass strategies that apply to all students Student group goals include strategies that target the needs of the specific student groups Schools can use the goal calculator to enter previous KCCT data and goals for the next school year will be automatically generated

11 Last Revised 5/27/11 11 Things to Keep in Mind: Dos and Donts 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?

12 Last Revised 5/27/11 12 Benchmarking involves: Frequent assessment of student performance Monitoring progress toward meeting goals Coinciding with the implementation and impact check Using results to improve instruction Assessments for Learning Benchmarking

13 Last Revised 5/27/11 13 How we used benchmarks in the past…

14 Last Revised 5/27/11 14 Summative Assessments Used to measure goals Assessments of Learning How much a student has learned at the end of course, semester, or unit Examples: KCCT ACT SAT Final Exams Unit ExamsProjects Assessment Overview

15 Last Revised 5/27/11 15 Assessment Overview Formative Assessments Used to measure progress toward goal Assessments for Learning Helps teachers adjust instruction Examples: QuizHomeworkObservations ChecklistsStudent Work Learning Checks

16 Last Revised 5/27/11 16 Goal – Benchmark Mapping Goal FocusPossible Benchmarks % Novice or % Proficient/Dist. Classroom Assessment System (CASCADE) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) AttendanceMonthly pupil attendance report Parent Involvement Parent-teacher conferences PTA membership Parent visits (school sign-in sheets) SuspensionsMonthly suspension report

17 Last Revised 5/27/11 17 Lessons Learned Benchmarks are important Quality strategies are even more important Implementation is critical

18 Last Revised 5/27/11 18 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

19 Last Revised 5/27/11 19 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 Keys for ensuring plan impacts school improvement:
