  3. Intent, Power, Possibility and Purpose of the UIP • School Improvement Historically at DPS: • Prior to the UIP process DPS developed School Improvement Plans (SIPs) • In 2008, Colorado introduced the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) to streamline state and federal accountability requirements. • The UIP was established by the Education Accountability Act of 2009 (SB 09-163) • Colorado is entering its 3rd year (2012-13) of requiring UIPs for all schools throughout the state.

  4. Planning Requirements met by the UIP

  5. Intent, Power, Possibility and Purpose of the UIP Evaluate Evaluate FOCUS Implement Plan • Theory of Action: Continuous Improvement

  6. How Has the UIP Process Focused Your School Improvement Efforts? “The UIP focuses our school community on the areas in which our students are needing the most intensive support or enrichment.  The collaborative work to create the document provides us with a clear vision of our goals and the steps that will be taken to accomplish those goals.  All stakeholders play a part in the creation and implementation of the plan, thus leading to a strong cohesive learning community.  The UIP is at the center of all we do.” Dori Claunch, Principal Morey Middle School

  7. How Has the UIP Process Focused Your School Improvement Efforts? “The UIP has helped us to decipher all relevant data and narrow down our focus into high impact areas. The UIP is an organic and living document that has served as the anchor for our work this year.” Anthony Smith, Principal Martin Luther King 6-12 School

  8. How Has the UIP Process Focused Your School Improvement Efforts? “Developing a meaningful UIP is the key to focused instruction for the academic and post secondary success for all students.  Remembering that the UIP is meant to be a living document ensures that revisions are expected based on the work being done and the results that are achieved.” Jeannie Peppel, Principal John F. Kennedy High School

  9. How Has the UIP Process Focused Your School Improvement Efforts? “The UIP reminds us to do what we expect from our teachers…analyze the data, set goals, develop action steps and measure the results.  Here at GBMS we align our UIP to the professional development, SGO's and data team process.  Although we have set up our plan there are times we have not met our goals.  This allows us take a step back and talk about why we did not meet the goal.  For example, we were going to incorporate small group instruction in our reading classes but did not provide enough PD to support the goal.” Alex Magaña, Principal Grant Beacon Middle School

  10. Intended Session Outcomes • Participants will understand: • The purpose, power and possibility of the UIP. • The accountability measures associated with the UIP. • How to develop each component of the UIP template. • How local, state and federal accountability connect to the UIP process. • How to progress monitor and engage stakeholders in the UIP process. • The state and district tools and resources available to assist school leaders in engaging in UIP work.

  11. Purpose of the UIP • UIP Purpose • Provide a framework for performance management. • Support school and district use of performance data to improve system effectiveness and student learning. • Shift from planning as an event to continuous improvement. • Meet state and federal accountability requirements. • Give external stakeholders a way to learn about how schools and districts are making improvements.

  12. Structure and Components of the UIP Template Major Sections: • Summary Information about the School (pre-populated template) • Improvement Plan Information • Narrative on Data Analysis and Root Cause Identification • Action Plan(s) • Appendices (addenda forms)

  13. Unified Improvement Planning Processes Gather and Organize Data Review Performance Summary Describe Notable Trends Prioritize Performance Challenges Identify Root Causes Data Analysis (Data Narrative) Data Analysis (Data Narrative) Set Performance Targets Identify Major Improvement Strategies Progress Monitoring Identify Implementation Benchmarks Identify Interim Measures Target Setting Action Planning

  14. UIP 101 Road Map • √ Overview of the UIP Process • √ Structure and Components of the UIP Template • New Updates to the UIP Process • Developing a UIP • Data Narrative • School Performance Frameworks and the UIP • Data Analysis: • Review Past Performance/Describe Trends/Performance Challenges/Root Causes • Action Plans: • Target Setting/Action Planning/Progress Monitoring • Leadership Considerations & Resources • School Type & Title I • UIP Timeline & DPS/CDE Resources

  15. New UIP Changes/Updates • Data Narrative • More Guidance Provided • It serves as a repository for everything you do in the UIP process. • Elements of the Data Narrative: • Description of the School Setting and Process for Data Analysis • Review Current Performance • State & Federal Accountability Expectations • Progress Towards Last Year’s Targets • Trend Analysis • Priority Performance Challenges • Root Cause Analysis • Progress Monitoring (Ongoing)

  16. New UIP Changes/Updates • Pre-Populated Template & Data Analysis • Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is no longer a part of school or district accountability; metrics removed from UIP • CELApro growth including median growth percentiles and median adequate growth percentiles added to SPF/DPF and UIP Template. • Disaggregated graduation rates added to SPF/DPF and UIP Template.

  17. New UIP Changes/Updates • Action Planning: Expectations/Target Setting • • English Language Proficiency – • CELA median student growth percentiles and median adequate growth percentiles in state SPF • If this is a priority performance challenge targets must be set in this area and reflected in the UIP template. • • Disaggregated Graduation Rates – • Grad rates for disaggregated groups in state SPF • If this is a priority performance challenge for the school/district, targets must be set in this area and reflected in the UIP template. • • Disaggregated Student Achievement – The state has established guidelines for setting targets for disaggregated student group performance. Starting in 2011-12, schools and districts should consider this guidance in establishing targets for student academic achievement.

  18. UIP Clarification • UIP is a 2-Year Plan • The plan and following elements should cover 2 academic years: • Targets • Major Improvement Strategies • Associated Action Steps

  19. UIP 101 Road Map • √ Overview of the UIP Process • √ Structure and Components of the UIP Template • √ New Updates to the UIP Process • Developing a UIP • Data Narrative • School Performance Frameworks and the UIP • Data Analysis: • Review Past Performance/Describe Trends/Performance Challenges/Root Causes • Action Plans: • Target Setting/Action Planning/Progress Monitoring • Leadership Considerations & Resources • School Type & Title I • UIP Timeline & DPS/CDE Resources

  23. Step 2. Review Current Performance State School Performance Framework (SPF)

  24. State SPF: Pre-Populated UIP Templates

  25. State SPF: Pre-Populated UIP Templates

  26. State: District & School Performance Frameworks Through the Colorado Educational Accountability Act of 2009 (SB09-163)… • CDE annually evaluates districts and schools based on student performance outcomes. • All districts receive a District Performance Framework (DPF). This determines their accreditation rating. • All schools receive a School Performance Framework (SPF). This determines their school plan types. • Provide a common framework through which to understand performance and focus improvement efforts.

  27. State Performance Indicators Slide 12

  28. State: Performance Indicators Weight

  29. State: 1 year vs. 3 year data • CDE provides two different versions of the School Performance Framework Reports: • The most recent year of data (1-year SPF, 2011) • The most recent three years of data (3-year SPF, 2011) • Only one report counts for official accountability purposes: • The one under which the school has ratings on a higher number of the performance indicators, or • If the school has ratings under an equal number of indicators, the one under which it received a higher total number of points.

  30. State: SPF Ratings • Cut-points for measures are calculated using state norms – all students in the state • Assigns a rating to each of the performance indicators: • Exceeds • Meets • Approaching • Does not meet

  31. State: School Plan Types The ratings roll up to an overall evaluation of the school/district’s performance, which determines the school’s plan type assignment:

  32. DPS School Performance Framework (SPF)

  33. What is DPS’ SPF? • Comprehensive, annual review of school performance in terms of student achievement and overall organizational strength using a variety of measures • Is the basis of school accreditation ratings required by statute? • Aligns district goals, state requirements, and federal mandates • Provides information for teacher and principal compensation systems • Made public for the Denver community and is a factor in enrollment decisions • Goals • Improve overall learning and achievement by informing critical, instructional decisions • Provide a complete and comprehensive picture of how schools in DPS are performing

  34. 2011 DPS SPF Overall Rating Categories 42% 31% 7% 9% *Alternative Schools excluded
