Students in Konocti are also Blooming in their Academics and in their Civility.
The Konocti Way
The Konocti plan envelopes two absolute beliefs and values for the organization, all students can learn, and a collective/collaborative approach.
The plan also incorporates other important principles and actions that uplift these critical beliefs. Principles and actions such as:
** Collaborate regularly and routinely
**Using student evidence and staff as feedback to adult progress
** Making informed decisions
** Students as partners with staff in their learning
**Act in a welcoming and appreciative way
How are we doing so far this school year?
Principals and I collaborate every month to ensure our impact on staff instruction and student growth.
Above are the collective agreements to positively impact instruction and student academic improvement, (a.) provide supports for staff to grow in their instructional practice, (b.), be present in the classrooms to monitor instructional growth and student improvement, (c.) compile the results to communicate, inform, and guide continued support.
Here is how I continue to evaluate my impact:
One main way that I influence growth in the school district is by working closely with and through the principals. The principals and I support instructional growth and then influence student improvement.
We use different supports to develop staff.
We use to gather evidence of growth in multi-ways
We use multi data points to evaluate growth in adults and in students against targets set throughout the school year (see the targets established for each trimester at this link https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1yT5-Sw0kbKqH6uHleqkOCbJSvhGV_H_5
Principals and I have been fortunate enough to visit almost every school between January through March.
One way is to measure progress is how well the students respond to the three fundamental questions:
When students can answer some version of these three questions it represents a student on track to make over one year's academic gain.
Below are some model responses.
What are you learning? The word "when"
How are you going along in your learning? I am doing good because I can accurately say "when"
Where to next in your learning? I will say the sentences with "when" in it. I will write the sentences with the word "when" in them.
What are you learning? Identifying the symbols for inequalities. And solving for inequalities.
How are you going along in your learning? So so. Graphing the solution is new. I need more practice.
Where to next in your learning? Not sure. Maybe more practice solving inequalities and on the graphing of solutions.
