This event is by invitation only. You must have a registration key in order to register.
The Regional Improvement Team (RIT) member of the Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) schools will work together with their colleagues on Pennsylvania’s System for LEA and School Improvement. Team members will discuss their roles and how they have approached working with CSI schools throughout the Cycle of Improvement. The emphasis will be on the various phases of implementation, monitoring and adjusting the course, and how each component fits into the Cycle of Improvement.
The improvement plan, completed in the steps of the Continuous Improvement Cycle, describes the activities (i.e., evidence-based strategies and associated action steps) that the school will carry out to address identified priorities. Implementation is the process through which a school carries out the plan with fidelity, including: evidence-based strategies, combined with effective implementation results in improved leadership, teaching and learning.
Implementation of the improvement plan requires ongoing monitoring and adjustments throughout the implementation process as the school’s needs and LEA conditions change. Monitoring and reviewing/tracking progress occurs at all levels of the system. The improvement cycle is iterative and ongoing and provides multiple opportunities for adjustment in implementation; school and LEA leaders may decide to make adjustments based on quarterly monitoring.
Following the training, participants will be able to:
- Develop an understanding of the Cycle of Improvement through a thorough review of the phases 1, 2 and 3, and an introduction of phases 4,5 and 6.
- List the stakeholders to be involved in the implementation phase of the Cycle of Improvement.
- Develop procedures for collecting benchmark data for the plan.
- Collaborate with improvement teams on developing routines with their schools and regions.
