Karin Chenoweth Quality Measures, March 12, 2010 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST Heres what Karin Chenoweth has to say: For the past year or so, I have been specifically looking at the question of leadership of these schools, and Ive been asked to share some of what Ive been learning I am only interested in schools with students that the education world generally considers to be challenging. But I would argue that these are the schools the entire education world should be paying attention to. I call the schools I write about Its Being Done schools to mark them as schools where the work of educating all children is being done. Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST Whats an Its Being Done School?

An Its Being Done school is one that is either very high achieving or rapidly improving and has substantial enrollments of students from low-income families or students of color or both. These are schools that are, generally speaking, not expected to be high performing. But they are.

Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST In the words of Karin Chenoweth, In essence, principals in Its Being Done schools set the expectation that every

student will achieveand then establish the conditions in which that can happen. Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST Principals focus teachers and staff on what they can change, rather than what they cant. What they cant change: Pre-natal care Low birth-weight Parental drug use Neighborhood Crime Rates Karin Chenoweth Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST What they can change: How they use time Quality of instruction

School environment and atmosphere Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST Principals recognize and act on the critical importance of teachers: They hire carefully They assign carefully Help teachers improve Karin Chenoweth Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST Principals make sure teachers focus closely on instruction by: Scheduling carefully to permit teacher collaboration and individual instruction. Ensuring that curriculum is closely aligned to

standards by reviewing lesson plans, assignments, and assessments. Karin Chenoweth Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST To sum up: The leaders in Its Being Done schools expect their teachers to teach and their students to learn and they create the environment that supports teaching and learning. http://www.edtrust.org/dc/presentation/how-its-bei ng-done-urgent-lessons Karin Chenoweth Source: 2009 THE EDUCATION TRUST Recapping Newly Defined Principal Preparation Programs

New Certification Structure designating PK-12 Principal Endorsement Programs must focus on instruction & school improvement Must meet ISLLC Standards & Strands of Distinguished Principal Rigorous admissions criteria Strengthened content in programs

IHE Partnership with PK-12 school(s)/district(s) Institution must commit sufficient resources for program Strengthen internship/residency Common assessments for internship/residency Revised state assessments 45 Strengthening Content Understanding

School Law Special Education Law Use of technology for administration, teaching, and learning Social Emotional Learning Standards Three-Tier Instruction and Intervention Model (curriculum, instruction, and assessment) Designing effective interventions for struggling students in (K-12), and through collaborative work develop and implement a successful system aimed at improved outcomes for all students

Bullying and School Safety Supervision and Assessment of Residency Demonstrate comprehensive performance in: Data analysis School Improvement Conducting SIP Process Conducting Teacher Hiring, Evaluation,

Induction, Mentoring of New Teachers, and Professional Development for all Teachers Conducting School-wide Management of Personnel and Resources Going Beyond School Leadership Leadership is foremost in establishing a culture of teaching and learning in a school. Without it even the best teachers cannot function to their fullest potential. Now that Illinois has developed newly defined expectations for the preparation and ongoing career development of school leaders, it is time to look at how the State prepares its teachers. How can we prepare teachers who will address the needs of each child in order to optimize individual learning? 48

Looking at Teaching Standards Pre-Service Advisory Group (PSAG) Revised the Illinois Professional Teaching Standards Focused on Each Child rather than All Children Focused on Literacy (Elementary and Secondary) Focused on needs of Special Education, ELL/Bilingual, Gifted Combined Language Arts, Technology and Illinois Professional Teacher Standards into one set of standards

Proposed rules will go to Illinois State Board of Education in March, 2010 49 Strengthening the Basic Skills Test Testing Changes Limit testing to 5 times for any one test - February 2010 Reset higher passing scores on Basic Skills - September 2010 Math 75%

Reading 79% Language Arts 79% 50 Current Illinois Initiatives Rule changes to strengthen content for Teachers Rule changes for endorsements for elementary, middle, and high school teachers

Strengthen testing by reviewing Passing Scores on Content Tests Redevelop new Assessment of Professional Teaching (APT) Grade of C or above required for all course work for program and endorsements effective February 1, 2012 Secondary Endorsements require 24 s.h. (12 s.h. of upper division) and pass the content test; except science and social studies which is 32 s.h.
