A Great Problem

to Have…

The Big Ah-has

  • Trust the research-based assessments.

  • Data isn’t for keeping, it’s for using.

  • Respect the ‘gift of time’. (When students are 1 year behind, they need to do twice as much, not half as much.)

  • Know what your kids need to know and TEACH them.

  • It’s all about the core instruction.

  • It all hinges on administrative knowledge and support.

  • It’s not about the program. It’s about the teaching.

  • And most importantly…



Cultivating Capacity and Sustainability

~A note for coaches and administrators~

  • Clarity of Purpose

  • Build the Schedule

    • Be Specific

  • Coaching

    • Consistency, Relationships

  • Professional Development

    • Training: Know what your teachers need to know and TEACH them!

    • Calendar

    • Time

  • Core Instruction = Most Bang for your Buck
