Supporting Districts in Meeting District Priorities
SSTs and other regional providers help district leadership understand the value of assistance in supporting the district to improve teaching and learning by addressing district-identified goals and priorities. Learning about the district – its beliefs, context, and structures – prior to talking with its leaders (e.g., by studying its history and performance record) is essential in order to help district leaders understand how services available through the SST can help them address district priorities.
Assessment SSoS Effectiveness in Supporting Districtwide Improvement
Work is ongoing to identify a set of common metrics associated with each of the three areas of practice. Preliminary work involves testing the use of the Systemic Improvement Practices Review (SIPR) instrument and discussion guide as the common measure in the Inclusive Instructional and Organizational Leadership area of practice.
