Dates: 10/18/2017

Today’s school leaders are balancing the needs of instructional leadership with school management. Do you want to strengthen your focus on improving academic achievement and growth results for students? Do you have a laser-like focus when working with department/grade-level teams and individual teachers to enhance their professional growth? Does this laser-like focus have a goal of providing leadership on the most effective instructional practices teachers can use with their students?

Key PVAAS reports can help you with this important work! This session will highlight the key PVAAS reports to show how you can truly differentiate your supervision and support based on the data of your school. This four-hour session will highlight various scenarios that demonstrate the use of the School Launchpad and School Teacher Summary report to determine if support is needed at the system level, grade/subject level, and/or at the individual teacher level. Once you learn how to analyze these reports, you will be ready to analyze your own PVAAS data after the fall PVAAS release.

To get the most from the day, time has been set aside in the afternoon for an optional two-hour work session for participants. Bring a snack or lunch so you and/or your team can continue the conversation in the afternoon and plan for using the fall PVAAS data. Facilitators from the PVAAS Statewide Team for PDE and IU Consultants will be available to answer questions and help make connections for you and your team.
