  1. Getting Ready for SIP: Identifying “Root Causes” Principal Professional Development Summer 2006 Office of Accountability, Assessment, & Intervention Office of School Intervention & Support

  2. Goals Participants will gain skills for their use of the Getting Results! frameworks. Participants will: • review all of the steps in School Improvement Planning including analyzing data and synthesizing findings from multiple sources of data • engage in discussion of “root causes”

  3. What is Getting Results! ? • Framework for school improvement planning developed by PDE that the School District of Philadelphia has adapted. • Access through the School District of Philadelphia homepage.

  4. Keep In Mind… • AYP - Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 11 • Reported Results - Assessment Anchors • Parent Involvement Action Sequence • SIP is online • PDE Review of SIPs • Science Action Sequence

  5. PSSA Reading Reporting Categories

  6. PSSA Mathematics Reporting Categories

  7. Summary of Shared Values Step 4: Development of People PD Calendar Milestones of Progress Executive Summary Prioritize Improvement Targets School District of Philadelphia School Improvement Planning Process Step 1: Summarize Data Identify Root Causes Step 5: Documentation Step 2: Design Step 3: Delivery Getting Results! A 5 Step Process

  8. 2006-2007 Student Achievement Improvement Targets * Every school improvement plan must address the following areas of student success: 1. READING At least 54% of all students will be proficientin Reading, as measured by the annual state-wide PSSA assessments. 2. MATHEMATICS At least 45% of all students will be proficientin Mathematics, as measured by the annual state-wide PSSA assessments. 3. STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN STATE ASSESSMENTS At least 95% of eligible students will participate in required state-wide assessments. 4. STUDENT ATTENDANCE Student attendance in school will improve continuously (to an average of at least 90% by 2014). 5. FOUR-YEAR GRADUATION RATE (high schools only) The 4-year graduation rate for high school students will increase consistently (to at least 80% by 2014). * If your school has already met these targets for all students and student groups, consider setting your own challenging, ‘stretch’ targets that will ensure continuous improvement of instructional practices and student achievement.

  10. Summarize the Shared Values • Summary includes the shared values, mission, core beliefs, and vision of the school community

  11. Data Collect, Synthesize, Prioritize and Summarize • analyze student data • identify most significant weaknesses/gaps • prioritize weaknesses/gaps

  12. Data Analysis Guide Worksheets to Assist in Analysis of Multiple Data Sources for School Improvement Planning

  13. Step 1: DataWhere are we now? • Summary – includes highlights of the analyses of student data • Identification of root causes that prevent or promote student achievement

  14. Step 2: Design Where do we want to go next? • Select research based, high leverage strategies that address the root causes • Action sequence for reading, mathematics and science is required • Thematic schools may select a strategy to support their theme

  15. Step 3: Delivery How are we going to get there? • Same process • Importance of building capacity of staff • Maximum use of resources (human and financial)

  16. Step 4: Development of People What additional skills do we need? • Determine training and skills needed by staff • Professional development calendar aligns to address rootcauses/student needs

  17. Step 5: Documentation How do we track our progress? • Effectiveness of strategies • Documentation process (time intervals)

  18. Milestones of Progress • Quality of Teaching • Quality Leadership • Artful Use of Infrastructure • Continuous Learning Ethic

  19. Checking for Understanding What are your questions about the action sequence?

  20. Root Causes Introduction & Exercises

  21. Root Causes A Root Cause is the deepest underlying cause or causes of positive or negative symptoms within any process, which if removed, would result in elimination, or substantial reduction, of the symptom.

  22. Why Root Cause Analysis ? Root Cause Analysis: • helps to eliminate the problem, not just the symptom • conserves scarce resources • promotes discussion and reflection • provides rationale for strategy selection

  23. Determining Root Causes Will correcting or eliminating this root cause result in success? If yes, then it is a root cause. If no, then it is a contributing factor.

  24. Problem, Root Cause, Solution Problem/Symptom: Your water bill is extremely high! Possible Root Causes:

  25. A Guide for Identifying Root Causes “We can talk or dream about the glorious schools of the future or we can create them .” Marilyn Ferguson

  26. Dimensions of School Improvement SUPPORTING REALM parents governance personnel ENABLING REALM materials schedules professional development organizational structures CORE REALM instruction curriculum assessments school leadership monitoring staff accountability for performance others identified by the school funding student readiness to learn others identified by the school

  27. Checking for Understanding What are your questions about analyzing data and identifying root causes?

  28. What can you expect for September?
