The Administrator’s Role

slide4

“In order to positively impact student achievement, the Common Core State and NC Essential Standards must be not just adopted but implemented.”

slide5

“The goal is to have content standards that actually impact what happens in the classroom. Unfortunately, there are too many examples where states have fine content standards that bear little resemblance to what is actually being taught and learned in classrooms.”

slide6

It’s 2011: Do you know

where your teachers are?

Do you know what and how

your teachers are teaching?

slide8

“We need to think carefully about what it will take for the Common Core and NC Essential Standards to become fully operationalized in every classroom, every year, from kindergarten to high school graduation.”

  • Mindful of 21st Century skill requirements
  • Measurable and concise
  • Integrated with other content areas
  • Driven by Revised Blooms Taxonomy (RBT)
slide24

“Principals need to get to know the standards. A critical principal role in implementing the standards change process is to facilitate powerful conversations regarding what the new standards indicate students should know and be able to do by the time they enter and leave each grade level. To do this, principals need to become intimately familiar with the organization, scope, depth and purpose for the new Common Core and Essential Standards.”

traps to avoid
Traps to avoid

Relinquishing responsibility

  • “My assistant principal handles curriculum.”
  • “I’m not a math/science/ELA… person.”

Overestimating

  • “The teachers are getting plenty of training; they’ve got a whole year to work it out.”
slide26

Underestimating support needs

  • “My people are professionals. I don’t need to be looking over their shoulders on this.”

Expecting it to go away

  • “We change the curriculum

every few years in this state…”

Confusing priorities

  • “PLCs are great, but we don’t really have time for that around here.”
slide27

Principals Encourage, Facilitate, & Manage:

  • Rationale and “buy in”
  • Collaboration opportunities
  • Common ground (w/old standards)
  • Informational writing
  • “Power Standards”
  • Locate/reallocate resources
  • Common formative assessments
  • Exceed the standards
