    32. What Should High School in the 21st Century Look Like? The American HS of the 21st Century is a dynamic, relevant and student-centered school with personalized programs, support services and intellectual challenges for all students. This high school will have the capacity to provide each student with an adult advocate and understand the motivation, aspiration and learning styles of each individual in order to fully engage them in their own learning to realize their full potential. Through varied and carefully designed experiences, students will acquire and nurture broad based skills and talents; publicly demonstrating mastery. Graduates will know how to learn, think critically, work collaboratively and express themselves articulately.

    33. High School Reform Initiative Adopted a systemic framework to improve student performance based on “Breaking Ranks” • Creating/sustaining a culture of continuous improvement • Providing all students with the opportunity to achieve at high levels. • Managing complex change: vision + skills + incentive + resources + action planning • Increasing student performance depends upon: Collaborative leadership Personalization Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment

    34. Recent Initiatives in Keeping with the Vision of a 21st Century High School • Development of Multi-media & Digital Arts curriculum • Filmmaking, Journalism, Children’s Literature, Acting and Guitar • Invitational Jazzfest, Senior Art Show, expanded community performances • Humanities Program for At-Risk 9th and 10th graders • Elimination of stretch courses in mathematics; add extended time to support at or above grade level instruction for all students • College offerings beyond AP, i.e. :SUPA Psychology & Forensics, SUNY Italian & Science Research • WISE Internships for seniors

    35. Recent initiatives continued • Facing History integrated into Contemporary Issues curriculum • Project Lead the Way: Pre-engineering • Elective program in physical education: Dance, Mountain Biking, Weight Training, Swimming, Violence Prevention for Women, Fitness & Nutrition • Alternative School within our school: Avanza and GED • Bilingual classes in math, science and social studies, • Development of American Citizenship course for new arrivals • Physics First • Development of Applied Physics as AIS for freshmen

    36. Recent initiatives continued • Individualized college preparation: Naviance System, college tours and visits, aid and scholarship support • Expanded career connections, i.e. Health fair at Phelps Hospital, TSTT, Tomorrow’s Nurses • Upward Bound • Co-teaching and inclusion • PBIS and targeted intervention • Technology integration, i.e.SmartBoards, web-based resources, laptops in classrooms, sign out to students • Block scheduling, flexible use of time to strengthen instruction

    37.

    38. Making reform happen… one shift at a time • Create and model a ‘can do’ culture • Identify manageable projects, take action and calculated risks • Consider niche programs to target pockets of need and similar interests… meaningful reform isn’t universal or one-size-fits-all • Empower students and staff • Breed and celebrate success, own failures as opportunities • Follow through • Get creative… reallocate resources and seek funding • Change is ongoing; be pleased but never satisfied

    39. Select Examples • Using data to identify real issues and target improvement: Student Management • Increasing rigor and access for all: Open enrollment in AP • Targeted intervention that engages students and motivates success: The Humanities Team • Personalization and student support in and beyond the classroom: Community Meetings • Restructure leadership to support new needs in the organization, while honoring the culture that exists: Planning Council

    40. Example of Using Data:Strengthen Student Management • Implement PBIS techniques • Review and align rules, code of conduct, classroom expectations • Improve incident recording and tracking • Analyze data and target interventions • Coordinate school community efforts • Targeted proactive intervention

    48. Get ready to… • Challenge belief systems • Take on the academic elite • Encourage risk taking • Accommodate failure • Celebrate success • Make students feel welcome and ready • Provide support systems to level the playing field

    49. Where to begin? • Examine current AP offerings and enrollment • Evaluate in the broader context of your college preparatory program • Analyze the breath and success of your honors program, when and how does ability grouping begin in your district? • Pinpoint when/how students are identified to take AP classes: What are the prerequisites, and what purpose do they serve? Examine the perception of students in AP classes, through the eyes of students, staff and parents.
