Transformation Team Update #2

Friday, November 30, the GHS Transformation Team convened for its second meeting of the 2018-19 school year. 22 members of Graham Local Schools staff, students, parents, community members and administrators were led by Epic Impact Leaders, Dr. Bobby Moore and Doug Carpenter. The meeting started with refocusing on the norms the Transformation Team identified from the previous meeting. The team reviewed elements from the September 13th meeting in regards to:

  • What’s really working?

  • Most surprising piece of data?

  • Understanding the impacts of the ACT, report card data and grading.

  • What knowledge, skills and/or dispositions do our Graduates need for Life Readiness or Success?

Our remaining time together focused on data responses of 450 surveys delivered to our students and 30 surveys from our staff as well as the focus groups occurring with our students. Key elements discussed included:

  • Identifying top 3 surprises

  • Article review of practices

  • Data review and discussion of surprises

  • Analysis of the data with strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for the district


If there are any questions or suggestions regarding the transformation team process, please reach out by email rismillerr@grahamlocalschools.org or by phone 937-663-4127. I will also be available for questions after school on Wednesday, December 19 from 3:00-4:00.
