A sample job description for a school Compliance Officer.
Despite best efforts, most school improvement initiatives—especially in high needs, disadvantaged schools—fail or show little improvement. And with all the pressing challenges educators face each day, it is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day fires and priorities and lose sight on executing on the end goals. Unfortunately, good intentions are not enough when it comes to driving growth. With strong implementation systems and evidence-based approaches, change can happen and schools can execute on their most important priorities. By the end of this webinar, school leaders will know the key strategies to:
Building an instructional coaching program that is aligned to instructional priorities and provides meaningful feedback. Building a PLC based on a positive deviance approach that empowers teachers to find what’s working and to replicate it. Launching an Instructional Leadership Team in order to devise and execute on improvement goals to improve student achievement.
Despite best efforts, most school improvement initiatives in high needs schools fail or show little improvement. With some estimates showing failure as high as 70% for strategic initiatives in for-profit companies, the challenge is even greater with school improvement efforts. The main reason for failure in strategic initiatives is the lack of execution. Unfortunately, good intentions are not enough when it comes to driving and sustaining growth. However, in school improvement efforts specifically, Instructional Leadership Teams (ILTs) can be one of the greatest levers to improving student achievement and empowering teacher leaders alongside principals and assistant principals in the school-wide improvement process.
In this webinar, learn how members of instructional leadership teams including principals, assistant principals, coaches, and teacher leaders can successfully devise, launch, and execute on school improvement goals—and experience wins for their school communities.
A strategic plan serves as an essential foundation and road-map for all your improvement efforts for your school or CMO. It ensures all educators are on the same page and serves as a “”living document”” that is referenced throughout the year to check on progress and to ensure all initiatives are in direct alignment with the plan. Misalignment or lack of alignment between a strategic plan and additional initiatives not in the plan can lead to confusion among staff, extra burdens on teachers as priorities may conflict, and lack of progress towards student achievement. In this webinar, learn how to start the planning process that will get you to a clear plan that:
Identifies the real instructional needs through data;
Invites internal and external stakeholders to work collaboratively to develop the plan; and
Includes a vision, theory of action, assets (what’s working already), big picture goal, and priority goals.
