Title: Title I Restructuring Plan

  • Title I Restructuring Plan
  • for
  • 2010-2011
  • March 2 and 4, 2010

Our Purpose
  • Communicate the vision and plan for
    restructuring Chandler Elementary School
  • Share information related to how the plan may
    affect all elementary licensed teachers in GCS
  • Present the process for making personnel

The Process
  • Approximately 50 stakeholders researched the
    viability of all options available to Chandler.
  • Stakeholders included parents, teachers,
    administrators, business partners and community
  • The consensus was to pursue the
    replacement/transfer of teachers.
  • Smaller work group drafted the details of plan.

The Plan Components
  • The following elements aligned with those which
    were found to be common among schools in Indiana,
    recently approved for restructuring.
  • Staff Transfer/Replacement
  • Leadership
  • Incentive Pay
  • Although the option of replacing staff does not
    require all of the following components to be
    addressed, there is nothing in the research to
    suggest that simply replacing/reassigning staff
    will achieve the desired results of improved
    student achievement.

Instructional Time
  • Increased instructional time is a variable that
    positively impacts student learning
  • Additional thirty (30) minutes of instruction
    within the teachers school day. This will be
    accomplished through master scheduling.

    four days/week for interventionists to work with

    scales (rubrics) to monitor progress on learning

    stories cited a positive school climate as a
    critical element for successful restructuring -
  • Climate survey will be conducted biannually
    results to help inform future changes
  • Positive school-wide behavioral expectations
    (i.e., Marvin Marshall)
  • Standardized dress to be phased in over the
    next 3 years
  • Multi-year classroom placements (looping) with
    students in two or three year cycles.
