Leading the Good to Great Movement in Your Schools

how good do you want to be
How good do you want to be?

Good is the enemy of great.

And that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great. We don’t have great schools, principally because we have good schools.

  • What do you think about the opening sentences of the book “Good to Great”?
  • Do you think that we all have a desire to be extraordinary ?
  • If so, what keeps people from being extraordinary or great?

the AYP report


In 08 – 09, the 3 subgroups that had 40 showed up green on the AYP report – this could give a false sense of security. I colored it yellow because all the proficiencies were negative. Even though we are looking at a different set of kids , this should spark a closer look because we are progressing in the wrong direction (all subgroups who were green progressed to red. Even though they did not have enough students to make a subgroup in Sp Ed and White, this greatly hurt them at a minimum in the all student category.


Celebrations/ Concerns: Number of students scoring Level 4 increased greatly from 08-09 to 09-10. Decreases in non proficient students in all subgroups except White. Looking at the AMO in 2011, all students were actually 23% below the goal of 92%. The only group that came close to the AMO was Reduced.


Effective data use consists of two key elements: “asking the right questions and acting on the answers.” (Protheroe, 2001)


What kind of effect is the Sp Ed subgroup having on AYP report? Effect on the district? How are we helping this subgroup?

Math scores seem to be better than reading when you look at the AYP report – but we are seeing a big drop in Math scores even though the AMO is much lower for Math. Did the red on the AYP report cause us to focus so much in reading to the exclusion of math?

Could the drop in math be attributed to “a group of students,” or curriculum issues, or effectiveness of instruction? What do we need to do to look at these areas?

Has something changed in the way math instruction was delivered?

In reading and math, who are the reduced lunch students and why are they having so much success?

Did we use this data last year to make instructional decisions?

How do students course grades compare with the results of standardized test?

Do teachers know the names of students scoring Level I and II? What is the plan to help make them successful?


Every year they needed an additional help…still way below 90 % even though it is appearing green on the AYP report.

beware of the more the merrier
Beware of “the More the Merrier”

Be selective about the data you choose…It is important to provide enough data so that participants can have a good degree of confidence that their observations are accurate. But too much information at one data delve can overwhelm, confuse, and exhaust people. (Depka, 2006)

a waste of time
“A Waste of Time”

Unless the team emerges from the data analysis process with a clear plan of action for identified students and for classroom instruction, it has wasted its time. (Thomas, 2006)


Who are you? Have your faculty revisit your mission statement. Make sure it conveys a clear, concise message that all stakeholders can understand

Where are you now? Begin with data- not tons of it, but selected pieces that can generate a general list of questions that your faculty can explore further and come up with solutions.


Where are You Going?

How do you plan to get there?


If we get the right people on the bus, the right people in the right seats, and the wrong people off the bus, then we’ll figure out how to take it someplace great.

Where are you going? Get a solid team, representative of your faculty that can make sure communication flows two ways – into the team and out from the team. You ,as the leader, need to create an atmosphere of cohesiveness.

How Do You Plan to Get There? Get input from the team and all members of your faculty. Remember the CIP is fluid and should be in a constant state of evaluation and amendment.

Students do best in schools where their teachers:

  • Convince them that they know them and care about them
