Why do we plan?
Two Minute Turn and Talk
16
A metaphor
17
IN MOUNTAIN CLIMBING- The creation of a vision,
the importance of a plan, the precision of
technique, careful organization, thoughtful team
building, painstaking route finding,
professionalism, and tenacity are critical to
achieving the goal. IN OUR SCHOOLS- Does the
education of our children demand any less?
18
Why do we plan?
  • To be more intentional and focus on whats
    important
  • To professionalize the culture by learning
    together and deprivitizing our practice
  • To build learning environments of inquiry, trust,
    and mutual respect

19
Building a Continuous Improvement Culture
The most compelling factor leading to school
success is functioning in a collaborative
family-like atmosphere. -Bridging the
Opportunity Gap
20
The Importance of Trust
Strongest Level of Trust
1 in 2 chances of making significant
improvements in student learning
Weakest Level of Trust
1 in 7 chances of making significant
improvements in student learning
(Source Bryk and Schneider)
21
Four Vital Signs of Trust
  • Integrity
  • Personal Regard
  • Respect
  • Competence

Assess School Readiness
School Readiness - the extent to which a schools
staff has the ability and willingness to
accomplish a specific task. Two major components
of readiness are ability and willingness.
Hersey, Paul and Blanchard, Kenneth, Management
of Organizational Behavior, Utilizing Human
Resources, Fifth Edition, Prentice Hall, 1988.
25
Assess School Readiness
  • Ability is the knowledge, experience, and
    skill that an individual or group brings to a
    particular task or activity.

Hersey, Paul and Blanchard, Kenneth, Management
of Organizational Behavior, Utilizing Human
Resources, Fifth Edition, Prentice Hall, 1988.
26
Assess School Readiness
  • Willingness is the extent to which an individual
    or group has the confidence, commitment, and
    motivation to accomplish a specific task.

Hersey, Paul and Blanchard, Kenneth, Management
of Organizational Behavior, Utilizing Human
Resources, Fifth Edition, Prentice Hall, 1988.
27
Assess School Readiness
Sometimes, people arent really unwilling, its
just that theyve never done a specific task
before. They dont have any experience with it,
so theyre insecure or afraid.
Hersey, Paul and Blanchard, Kenneth, Management
of Organizational Behavior, Utilizing Human
Resources, Fifth Edition, Prentice Hall, 1988.
28
School Readiness for Planning
Willing (Attitudes)
  • Staff Focused on Action
  • Value Data in Decisions
  • Value Input
  • Receptive to Change

29
Readiness Assessment
Not a one-time event assess for every step and
every activity of school improvement planning
Assessments are completed by the school
improvement team
See MI-Plan tool readiness assessments and
resources under Foundation/Readiness to Benefit/
Materials

Step 1 Assess Readiness to Benefit (Foundation
for Planning)
Essential Off-line Process Activities SIP Guide
Step 1
  • Establish a school improvement team.
  • Assess schools readiness to plan.
  • Determine SIP team/steering committee level of
    knowledge in school improvement process and
    research-based practices.
  • Develop a School Introduction.
  • Create a school improvement planning calendar
  • Define/clarify the schools decision making
    process.
  • Verify/validate the schools mission statement.
  • Create a school vision statement.

- Required Activities
32
A word about Mission and Vision Statements
  • P3T Paper, Passing , Purpose Tool (Tool Time)
  • 1)Divide stakeholders into small groups-Each
    stakeholder get index card has 5-10 minutes to
    write a vision/mission statement-no names
  • 2) Pass papers to left-upon receiving colleague
    underlines the significant words or
    passages-passes on-continue until each statement
    has been reviewed by all members
  • 3) Recorder for group writes all the underlined
    statements on flipchart-repeat process to form
    one common list of statements-- 2-3 small groups
    combine thee underlined words into a
    vision/mission statement
  • Each group shares their statements-combine into
    one statement or have small group do so --all
    stakeholders review statement and come to
    agreement-Use a Consensogram to confirm agreement

33
What are your process for coming to consensus?
Consenogram (Tool Time) 1)Give each person same
size sticky note 2) Determine what is going to be
measures (e.g. How committed are you to?) 3)
Write numbers in increments of 10 (10-100)
virtically on the left side of a flipchart sized
paper-these percentages are used to represent
what you think, feel, or where you stand 4) Each
person writes a representative percentage on
their sticky note and puts them in the center of
table 5) Post notes on flipchart to form a
frequency distribution chart-discuss results-
Have you reached consensus? Note Another quick
check is Fist to Five
