And The Journey Continues...
Pressing Forward With School Improvement
Greetings Focus School Colleagues,
The possibility of coming off the "Focus List" at the end of the 2014-2015 should compel us all to view "this year" with a sense of urgency. This year will be about building sustainable capacity, deepening the understanding of what "Highly Effective" schools "know" and "do," and taking "ownership" of the School Improvement Process.
Keeping Our Hands To The Plow....
Tentative Focus School Collaborative Training Dates:
Session 2-Tuesday, October 28, 2014
Session 3-Friday December 5, 2014
Session 4-Thursday, January 29, 2015
Session 5-Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Session 6-Wednesday, April 29, 2015
This year we will be drilling deeper into TKES/FIP and the work of the Principal.
Therefore we ask that Principals be the target audience and attend each session.
As part of the training this year, we will be going into schools as a Collaborative Team to observe and collectively calibrate our findings to ensure a deep understanding of what is involved in highly effective instructional practice.
I look forward to getting back into the schools and working shoulder-to-shoulder with each of you. I will see you soon!
