Site Visitations 

District administrators visit each site multiple times throughout the year, often in teams. The host principal reviews the school's current goals and foci and then leads a tour through each of the classrooms.  Instruction and teacher actions are analyzed through the lenses of the four Essential Components of Instruction:

 

  1. Developing & Teaching to Instructional Objectives
  2. Student Engagement
  3. Feedback
  4. Monitoring & Adjusting while teaching

Additionally, for 2016-2017, site teams will visit and provide feedback regarding PLC meetings, interventions, and common core.  The team debriefs at the end of the observations to identify patterns, trends, strengths, and weaknesses.  This analysis serves as specific feedback for the principals, site, grade levels, and individual teachers.  It also assists in planning future staff development and staff meeting activities that are relevant to the individual site.


 

New Principal Support

Recognizing that quality instructional leadership and continued high student performance require stellar skill-sets among principals, we provide ongoing support to each of our administrators, particularly those new to the role.  Weekly visitations with each new principal provide an opportunity to support and guide our leaders with pressing issues.  Each classroom is observed during the visits to identify trends or issues needing attention. The focus is on the instructional needs of the site; we analyze data, review team goals/progress, and plan staff development activities for leadership, grade level, and whole-staff meetings.
