ILT Supports and links

“If your school is not there yet with data, where can you begin?”

Retooling your agenda might be a good first start. Here are some sample agendas that include components from the ILT survey to consider:

The process of ILT analyzing data is intended to be used for school improvement purposes to adjust plan and instruction toward meeting school improvement goals. To get started you might ask:
  • What data do you have to look at?
  • What is the question you are trying to answer with the data?
  • How does the data show what the student knows?
  • How does the data inform our adult practice?

Some possible data to look at could be: walkthrough, attendance, evaluations from professional development, behavior, student work across grade levels, formative & summative assessment, etc.

Some links to articles about data and the school improvement process can be found here:
