New Leaders, Inc.

All rights reserved. | 29 Sharing Best Practices: Goal Setting Some of your colleagues are here to share their perspectives on setting goals.

Walk through your process for setting district goals and describe how evaluation connects to that work? What prep work do you and your administrators do in advance? How do you make the links between student improvement goals and leadership performance areas? Walk through your own process for assessing the quality of student improvement goals. Additional questions? New Leaders, rights

reserved.| 30 | New Leaders, Inc.Inc. AllAll rights reserved. The Student Improvement Goal Quality Test Data Analysis Explain how the goal demonstrates alignment to district priorities.

Does the goal provide an opportunity for the targeted schools or student groups to move in a coordinated effort toward increases in student achievement? Provide a rationale. Explain how the assessments help you track progress on the goals and what important benchmarks exist throughout the year. Explain how the measures allow you to track growth in addition to attainment, particularly if the goal calls for it. Alignment Measures Strategies

How does the goal address a critical area of growth for the students influenced by the work of the district administrator? Does one goal align to a state-approved measure B assessment, and is the other goal clearly focused on improving a key student outcome? Is the target informed and driven by past performance? Describe. Describe how the administrator identified strategies (Components I-IV) will support the target that has been set. Have the targeted schools set goals that are aligned to the district administrators goals, or does the district administrator goal roll up from school-level goals?. New Leaders, Inc. All rights reserved. | 31 District Student Improvement Goal: An example Time bound to June, but set up to track progress on NWEA/MAP benchmark administrations throughout year.

Reading level set up to monitor and measure student growth. This goal also addresses grades not tested in state assessment data. By June 2016, 85% of 2nd and 3rd grade students district-wide will reach or exceed their RIT projected growth score in English Language Arts as measured by the NWEA/MAP assessment. Assessment measure has three administrations which allows for monitoring benchmark growth toward goal. Grade level goals are clearly outlined. Setting ambitious goals for students early on is instrumental in moving toward district goal of every child reading at grade level in 3 rd grade New Leaders, Inc. All rights reserved. | 32
