Continuous improvement — the process of cyclically setting PD goals and evaluating the resulting data for change — is a key driver of excellent instructional practice. But like an engine, a data program requires the right fuel to function. Too often, school district leaders find they have spreadsheets of PD data, but lack the next steps to actually fuel improvement work.
Join KickUp, Barbara Phillips of Windsor Central School District, and Cara C. Skaggs of Maury County Public Schools to go over the most common data roadblocks for educator development programs — and hear how these real-life PD showrunners have tackled them.
- Confused on when and how to collect PD data, let alone put it to work
- Making isolated decisions with unclear coach or educator buy-in
- Trading off between teacher interests and strategic plan alignment (or vice versa)
- Trying to demonstrate clear evidence of your work's impact
... then this conversation is for you.
