July 28th, 2015-Line graphs, chains and coffee stains: Build a plan that actually leads to improved student outcomes

We all have plans: strategic plans, project plans, action plans. But how often do these plans feel like a time-sucking exercise in compliance? How often do they end up gathering dust on a shelf? And more importantly, how often do the plans we make really drive improvements in student outcomes? In this webinar co-author of Deliverology in Practice Nick Rodriguez explains how the "delivery approach" will help you create plans that draw a clear roadmap between your priority reforms and measurable improvements in student outcomes.

June 24th, 2015: Georgia’s Story (Part 2): Leader Effectiveness

Three years ago, Georgia DOE set out to develop new technology solutions to support their overall goal of supporting and promoting teacher and leader effectiveness to improve student learning in every classroom in the state. Under an aggressive timeline set forth by Race to the Top, Georgia successfully developed and implemented a scalable electronic platform, now used by 150,000 educators across the state. During this webinar, Georgia will share how they developed and implemented a successful system for leader evaluations and professional growth.

The Leader Keys Effectiveness System (LKES) is used as a common evaluation system that allows the state to ensure consistency and comparability across districts, including inter-rater reliability of observers, based on a common definition of leader effectiveness. LKES provides leaders with meaningful feedback to support their continuous growth and development by monitoring, analyzing, and applying pertinent data from multiple sources toward attainment of established performance goals.

Learn more about Georgia's processes for ensuring increased student achievement for over 1.7 million students.

Three years ago, Georgia DOE set out to develop new technology solutions to support their overall goal to promote and support teacher and leader effectiveness to improve student learning in every classroom in the state. Under an aggressive timeline set forth by Race to the Top, Georgia successfully developed and implemented a scalable electronic platform, now used by 150,000 educators across the state. During this webinar, Georgia will share how they developed and implemented a successful system for teacher and leader evaluations and professional growth.

The Teacher Keys Effectiveness System consists of multiple components, including student learning objectives, observations, surveys, and student percentiles, providing a comprehensive review of teacher effectiveness, with targeted support to promote continuous growth. The Leader Keys Effectiveness System is used as a common evaluation system that allows the state to ensure consistency and comparability across districts, including inter-rater reliability of observers, based on a common definition of leader effectiveness. The Systems provide educators with meaningful feedback to support the continuous growth and development of each teacher and leader by monitoring, analyzing, and applying pertinent data from multiple sources toward attainment of established performance goals.

February 11, 2014: MET Project Update

SCEE members conferred about applying MET outcomes during our third annual webinar with Steve Cantrell

MET project unveiled resources and lessons learned with SCEE in 2012 and 2013. Steve reviewed culminating findings and the report, Feedback for Better Teaching: Nine Principles for Using Measures for Effective Teaching prior to this webinar.

We used our third meeting to deliberate how SEA staff can integrate outcomes from the project into their work and learn of initiatives that are based upon this same task.

A segment of our meeting extended from one of Steve's suggestions. He noted that increasing educator effectiveness involves system shifts. These adjustments should create instructional supports and environments for quality teaching. Our conversation considered where to structure these shifts and how "managing the middle" and teaching "plateau" target effectiveness. 

Members responded with questions, ideas, and comments that may benefit you and your colleagues. This is a conversation that you'll want to hear or even revisit! SCEE members may either stream or download the recording.

September 10, 2013: ESEA Flexibility Renewal

Monique Chism named several actions that will strengthen ESEA renewal applications when she presented during the September webinar.

Monique said states should work on the items or start to contextualize how their area progressed towards these objectives soon to ensure continuous improvement is reflected. A few items are outlined below.

  • The ESEA renewal application requires states to consult with stakeholders about the impact of changes on various groups. Monique advised SEAs to specifically highlight any modifications that occur. This will ensure meetings are documented and changes are supported. 
  • States must outline what guidelines they will use to assure  Title II, Part A funds are used for research-based professional development and that the instruction deepens educator's knowledge of CCR standards.
  • SEAs must describe how they will execute a plan to ensure that poor and minority students are not taught at higher rates by ineffective teachers.

In October 2013, the application will move from draft to final form and USED will release a FAQ guidance document.
