The Regents Reform AgendaSupported by Race to the Top

  • Teacher Preparation & Effectiveness

    • Transform the field of teacher preparation from an emphasis solely on inputs (course hours, course titles) to an emphasis on research-based critical outcomes.

    • Implementing the new teacher and principal evaluation system

  • Curriculum & Professional Development – Provide every student with a world-class curriculum that synthesizes rigorous content and skills to prepare students for college, the global economy, 21st century citizenship, and lifelong learning.

  • Assessment – Ensure that the New York State 3-12 assessment regime: (1) allows teachers, families, administrators, policymakers, and the public to evaluate accurately student preparedness for college, the global economy, 21st century citizenship, and lifelong learning; and (2) provides rich data that facilitates effective decision-making at the classroom, school, district, and state level.

  • Transform the Field of School Leader Preparation- From an emphasis solely on inputs (course hours, course titles) to an emphasis on outcomes as measured by a performance-based assessment of leadership and impact on student achievement.


Strategic goals continued

Strategic Goals (continued)

  • Early Childhood - Expand access to high-quality early childhood learning opportunities to provide the academic and social skills foundation students need for success in 3-12 education, college, and the global economy and society of the 21st century.

  • Raise Graduation Rates for At-Risk Students – raise the graduation rates for at-risk student populations (particularly ELLs, SWDs, low-income students, African-American students, and Latino students) through redesigning secondary schools to increase student engagement and to ensure that secondary schools equip students with the skills they will need to succeed in college and the global economy and society of the 21st century.

  • Replace Failing Schools* – use our existing authority to intervene in and/or close chronically underperforming schools and work with school districts to implement strategies to dramatically improve student outcomes for communities now served by the lowest-performing schools

  • Build a P-20 data system - Efficiently provide information that will strengthen decision-making at the classroom, school, district, and state policy levels (inc. instructional decision-making and program design).

  • Transform NYSED - From a compliance-oriented agency focused on monitoring inputs to a support-oriented agency focused on helping districts ensure their students are prepared for college, the global economy, 21st century citizenship, and lifelong learning.

Highly Effective

Teachers

  • Adopting internationally-benchmarked standards and assessments that prepare students for success in college and the workplace

  • Building instructional data systems that measure student success and inform teachers and principals how they can improve their practice

  • Recruiting, developing, retaining, and rewarding effective teachers and principals

  • Turning around the lowest-achieving schools


The challenge and the opportunity

The Challenge and the Opportunity

  • The fiscal challenge – the statewide challenge is very real for all of us and presents an inherent tension that we must confront

  • The imperative of change – in spite of the fiscal climate, we simply cannot wait to start the critical work of increasing the opportunities and achievement of our students

  • The call to collaborate – I am confident that with a shared vision, a commitment to collaboration around implementation and a promise for continued communication with you, our district superintendent colleagues and the rest of our partners, we can achieve the goals that the Regents have set out for us.
