Focus areas for change
  • Culture How do we build culture?
  • Learning How do we train teachers, build
    community and promote collaboration?
  • Structure How do we create/build systems and
    procesess to respond to student needs (academic
    and non-academic)?

Effective planning will provide a roadmap to
create change by
  • Effectively planning how to use and allocate
    resources to support the goal of school
    transformation.
  • Utilizing school planning documents to create
    an opportunity to align all of the resources to
    support measurable goals, achieve the mission,
    and create the vision for the school.

reflective of what we believe and what we do?

  • Often what we say we believe and what we do are
    not aligned.

  • believe and value.

Protocol Activity 1
  • Principals will work in teams to share ideas,
    answer questions.
  • Each team will answer a series of questions
    reflective of the essential elements of the
    planning process.
  • Each team will have 5-8 minutes to discuss and
    answer each question. Responses should be written
    on flip chart paper
  • After each question has been discussed/answered,
    each group will be asked to share what was
    learned, discussed.

school year? What is the data that supports these
changes?

How are these areas/levers of change reflected in
your school planning (SIP/SIG)? Are they
reflected in measurable goals? Are these key
areas supported through your allocations,
resources, and professional development? How?

Is there a systemic process in your building to
provide professional development to your
stakeholders on how to execute the stated
strategies? Is there a process in place to
provide monitoring, feedback or re-training for
the strategies that will support your focus areas
over the next three years?

have in place to provide press and support to
improving the instructional core (student,

documents?
