Week of February 15-19, 2016
In his book "Driven by Data", Paul Bambrick talks about the five-core drivers of a data-driven culture. They are: (1) highly active leadership team, (2) introductory professional development, (3) implementation calendar, (4) ongoing professional development, and (5) build by borrowing.
This week we will be focusing on three of these drivers:
- Highly active leadership team: we will be facilitating teacher-leader data analysis meetings that are focused on teaching and learning and student success.
- Implementation calendar: teachers will submit their 6-weeks calendars that include TEKS to be taught and opportunities for rehearsal and re-teaching of low areas. These calendars are flexible and are driven by student data.
- Ongoing professional development: teachers and staff members will have the opportunity to engage in professional learning communities in the district-wide professional development day on February 15th.
