Building A Better School Together 1 Planning Creating
Building A Better School Together 1 Planning Creating a New Path Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but somewhere he feels there is another way, if only he could stop for a moment and think of it. Milne (1926) 2 What is Planning? The space between where you are and where you want to be Identifying your highest priorities, setting goals and
selecting actions that will get you closer to those goals An active process of determining where you are going to spend your time and what you are going to focus on Activity management A prioritized check list 3 Planning To Improve Present Condition Planning Process Desired Condition

Culture Defined Organizational culture is the result of shared beliefs, values, expectations, and assumptions that direct individual and group thinking and behaviour. The culture shifts when members of an organization change their views of their work world and behave in a new way. Effective Planning can lead to a shift in culture as a result of changes in staff behaviour. 8 Shared Beliefs and School Culture CHARLES DARWIN SCHOOL We believe all kids can learn...based upon their ability. THE PONTIUS PILATE SCHOOL We believe all kids can learn....if they take advantage of the opportunities we give them to learn.
Adapted from DuFour, DuFour, and Eaker (2008) 9 Shared Beliefs and School Culture THE HAPPY VALLEY SCHOOL We believe all kids can learn...something, and we will help all students experience academic growth in a warm and nurturing environment. HARBORS OF HOPE HIGH SCHOOL We believe all kids can learn...and we will work to help all students achieve high standards of learning. Adapted from DuFour, DuFour, and Eaker (2008) 10 The Value of Shared Values Shared values are the foundation for building productive and genuine working relationships.
They: Are the internal compasses that enable people to act independently and interdependently Provide groups with a common reference for making decisions and taking action Kouzes and Posner (2011) 11 Johnson & Johnson Aligning Actions With Values The values that guide our decision making are spelled out in Our Credo. Put simply, Our Credo challenges us to put the needs and well-being of the people we serve first. The Credo was written by Robert Wood Johnson in 1943.
12 Johnson & Johnson Aligning Actions With Values The ActionsOn September 29, 1982, a Tylenol scare began when the first of several individuals died in Chicago after ingesting extra-strength Tylenol that had been deliberately laced with cyanide. Within a week, the company pulled thirty-one million bottles of capsules back from retailers. 13 Johnson & Johnson Aligning Actions With Values The OutcomeJohnson & Johnson consistently ranks at the top of the Harris
Interactive National Corporate Reputation Survey. It ranks as the worlds most respected company by Barrons Magazine. 14 Vision A vision describes the future you are trying to create. What we want our organization to become. It provides direction for planning. The vision should be clear, inspiring and able to capture the hearts of members of the organization. 15 The Power Of A Vision Our vision is to be earth's most customer centric company; to build a place where
people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online. Amazon 16 Purpose Statements Effective purpose statements answer two questions: 1. What are we trying to achieve? 2. What do we do that matters most? 17 Behaving On Purpose Google: Google's purpose is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.

condition of the patient (make a diagnosis). The diagnosis results in a treatment plan which is then implemented and monitored for effectiveness. In school improvement planning, the same process holds true. 20 How Critical is the Evidence? 40% of McDonalds profits come from Happy Meals. The average ear of corn has eight hundred kernels arranged in sixteen rows. The number of possible ways of playing the first four moves per side in a game of chess is 318,979,564,321. American Airlines saved $40,000.00 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first class.
21 Critical Evidence in the Planning Process Data for Study Monitor/Adjust Data related to values becomes critical evidence for planning STRUCTURES, SYSTEMS, PROCESSES GOALS VALUES What we care about What we measure What we want to achieve What we need to change Critical Evidence for Planning
Critical evidence is used to set meaningful goals and make necessary changes in structures and systems. The information it provides helps to assess whether progress is being made toward achieving the goals that have been set. 22 Disaggregated Results for Language Arts 2010-11 Students in Grade 3 Percentage reaching acceptable level = 79.5 Percentage reaching excellence level = 13.7 Disaggregated Data: Acceptable Excellence Failing to Meet Acceptable Total Girls

relevant information to monitor and adjust Create an agenda and keep minutes Work collaboratively 3 Big Ideas Focus on results Focus on learning
Adapted from DuFour, DuFour, & Eaker (2008) Commit to continuous improvement Outcomes of collaboration are made explicit 25 Collaborative Learning Teams reflect on the critical evidence to decide: 1.What it tells about their students achievement 2.Which critical evidence is most important 3.Which students will be targeted for impact
Reflection on critical evidence is the first step in goal setting which must be guided by the schools values. Teachers cannot focus on more than two or three goals at a time. 26 Heart Criteria for Effective Goals 1. Staff can commit to achieving them 2. Measurable 3. Written in simple, easily understood language Head & Hands 4. Focused on student achievement 5. Linked to year end assessment or other standards-based means of determining student outcomes usually within a subject area
6. Facilitate comparison of student achievement from year to year 27 S.M.A.R.T. Goals Specific and Strategic Measurable Attractive and Attainable Results Focused Time Bound 28 S.M.A.R.T.ER. Goals Strategic and Specific Measurable Attainable Results focused Time bound E.R. Extra Reach

In addition at least 80% of the students will successfully achieve 5 levels of improvement. 30 The Planning for School and Student Success Process Phase 2 Measure Current State
