— From the 2016 Carnegie Foundation Summit on Improvement in Education Program
This session will share the journey of leaders across 12 school districts who have implemented a scorecard process that focuses on selecting measurable annual outcomes in core areas and identifying progress monitoring measures that predict performance on those year-end outcomes. Within each of these districts, superintendents, central office leaders, and school principals have endeavored to anchor practice improvement in disciplined inquiry to improve core outcomes (achievement, people, service, and finance) at scale across a district and progress-monitoring measures to be evaluated throughout the year. Up to three times annually, leaders inquire into progress to identify how actions impacted results using an innovative online tool that supports continuous learning. Leaders hone new skills in process improvement and continuous learning using this ongoing cycle and engage in professional coaching and/or in-district learning opportunities directly related to the gaps identified by the progress monitoring measures.
