Guidelines for the Protocol: Examining Student Work for What Matters Most. The Research and Development Project for the SB 1274 Accountability/Learning Support System.
California Center for School Restructuring, Redwood City.
This document provides guidelines designed to provide an interactive process for schools and communities to meet students' learning needs. The process, called The Protocol, is designed to ensure that restructuring schools in California focus on students' learning experiences, assess their accomplishments, and provide input from education stakeholders into restructuring. Twenty-four restructuring schools are included in the California Center for School Restructuring's 5-month research and development project. Two teams from each school or district participate in each Protocol session. Each team conducts a four-part analysis of the school using input from the entire school community. The analysis includes a written preview, an oral introduction, a student work analysis, and reflection on feedback. Each Protocol session also includes six to eight reflectors who provide feedback and perspectives to help team members. Observers are key stakeholders in the state restructuring effort who make observations on the process as a learning system. A moderator represents different roles and is responsible for creating and maintaining a constructive atmosphere. Also included are a time format for the Protocol, advice from the research and development schools, and Protocol criteria. Appendices include Protocol design features, acknowledgements, an overview, and a list of participating bodies. (JPT)
