Eastside Goals and Data

Goal Setting and Data Tracking

In the beginning of this three year process, I heard lots about setting SMART Goals. In my mind, we were good because we had our SMART goals from the project that tied to end of year data. On my zoom call with the beloved Becky DuFour, she made it crystal clear to me that the SMART goals that would move the needle of Eastside's work would be setting SMART Goals tied to essential standards. She was spot on with those words of wisdom! I will truly treasure that conversation.


We began to make SMART goals in year 2 of our work that anchored around our Units of Study and the essential standards. The staff started to become familiar with creating goals for their essentials. One thing we lacked was the ability to track how we were doing on each essential.


In year 3, we developed Essential Standard charts that teams shade in as they teach an essential and give a CFA. This is still a work in progress but it is becoming part of the work!


Along with tracking our essential standards on charts, we also track MAP and ACT Aspire in our team meeting room as well as digital spreadsheets. During year 1, we began to see the need for kids to embrace the data and thus began student data binders! We have come a long way since year 1 with different templates and formats including one grade level going digital with their student binders.
