TEACHING/LEARNING

WE BELIEVE IN OUR TEACHING & LEARNING

WE BELIEVE curriculum is a combination of instructional and assessment practices with learning resources. Curriculum is not found, exclusively, in our textbooks, but becomes culturally relevant when influenced by the events within our local, national, and global communities.       
                 
At its core, curriculum is a framework that is inclusive, data- driven, adaptable, and responsive to the needs of all learners. 
                       
Innovative curriculum is accessible for all students and staff to ensure equitable opportunities for success. Curriculum that is grounded in Universal Design for Learning will offer flexibility in the ways that students access material, engage with it, and show what they know.


  • OUR STRATEGIES WILL implement innovative curriculum that is inclusive, data driven, adaptable, and responsive to the needs of all learners.                                                
  • WE WILL MEASURE BY using curriculum map/unit plan rubric data to measure the improvement over time of curriculum maps/unit plans.

ABOUT COMPETENCY SELECTION

Selection refers to the purposeful process of recruiting, interviewing, and hiring ‘with the end in mind’. Selection through an active implementation lens includes identifying skills and abilities that are prerequisites and/or specific to the innovation or program, as well as attributes that are difficult to train and coach.

ABOUT COMPETENCY TRAINING

All staff members need training in healthy culture to have a clear understanding of what is expected of them. Training through an active implementation lens is defined as purposeful, skill-based, and adult-learning informed processes designed to support teachers and staff in acquiring the skills and information needed to begin using a new program or innovation.

ABOUT ORGANIZATION SYSTEMS INTERVENTION

The purpose is to create and sustain an environment and conditions that support the new way of work. The goal of systems intervention is to identify and eliminate or reduce such barriers, or to enhance and sustain those policies, procedures, and regulations that facilitate the work at hand.

ABOUT ORGANIZATION DECISION SUPPORT DATA SYSTEMS

The Decision Support Data System (DSDS) is a system for identifying, collecting, and analyzing data that are useful to the teacher, school, district and other implementing environments. The system itself needs to live up to its name. It must be a data system that provides timely, reliable data for decision-making.

  • FALL 21






ABOUT TECHNICAL LEADERSHIP

Technical challenges are those characterized by pretty clear agreement on a definition of the dimensions of the problem at hand. Technical problems also have clearer pathways to solutions.  The leader can form a team, make a plan, make decisions, hold people accountable and execute the solution.


Technical challenges respond well to a more traditional management approach where problems are defined, solutions are generated, resources are garnered and tasks are assigned, managed, and monitored. A leader guides the overall process and is more “in charge.”



ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP

ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP ACTION STEPS

TIMELINE
TL 23
Describe the philosophical framework for the design of curriculum, the alignment of the written, taught, and tested curriculum, and the approaches used in delivering the curriculum. 
  • FALL 21



TL 24
Emphasize the importance of understanding the difference between non-negotiable curriculum practices (objectives, priority standards, mission, etc.) and flexible curriculum practices (how we engage students, represent information, and provide options for students to show what they know and can do). 
  • FALL 21        






ABOUT ADAPTIVE LEADERSHIP

Adaptive challenges aren’t “solved” through traditional management approaches, because adaptive challenges involve legitimate, yet competing, perspectives — different views of the problem and different perspectives on what might constitute a viable solution.  In this case, the definition of the problem is much less clear, and the perspectives on the “issue” at hand differ among stakeholders.  Viable solutions and implementation pathways are unclear and defining a pathway for the solution requires learning by all. This “all” means that the primary locus of responsibility is not a single entity or person. These types of challenges require a different type of leadership and often require leadership at many levels.
