Presentation Transcript

What does it take to sustain an effective reading program? That which is worth sustaining is best supported not by a person but by a system and its culture. Build and nurture the system and its culture.

Answering Important Questions

2008-2009 Project Level Goals for K/1

  • Increase the percent of strategic and intensive students making adequate progress and/ meeting the benchmark goal.


  • Pacing
  • Plan groups now to start interventions and/or small groups early in September.
  • What lesson do students need to finish by the end of year to reach goal?
  • Instruction
  • Provide language instruction in grades K-1.
  • When in doubt, place students in intervention rather than core. Remember, a benchmark score is only the 40th percentile.
  • Ensure all students are having multiple opportunities to respond rather than individual turns.
  • Provide students more time reading connected text.

Are enough of our students in the established (low risk) range?

Are too many students in the in the deficit (at-risk) range?

data based leadership planning
Data-Based Leadership Planning


(a) your school’s DIBELS Data Summary, (b) a review of your school action plan progress, and

(c) your principal walk-through feedback to identify relevant actions that you can do to support your school action plan.

district support
District Support
  • What support does the principal need to meet principal actions?
  • What support do the schools need to meet school actions?
Instructional leadership is perhaps the single most important role for principals to play when increased achievement is the goal.

(National Association of Elementary School Principals, 2001)
