Evaluating and Improving the State of Global Competency within the Appoquinimink School District
Dallas, Jody Kelly
ProQuest LLC, D.Ed. Dissertation, University of Delaware
The Appoquinimink School District renewed its commitment to its stakeholders in 2006 by refocusing district attention toward providing "a world-class education where each of our students gains the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes needed to contribute and flourish in a global society" (ASD Strategic Plan, 2008). As a result of this new focus, district initiatives were put in place to begin to provide the knowledge, understanding, skills, and attitudes that began to lay the foundation of this world-class education. However, research in the field of global competency and a close, detailed look at how the district was effecting change within the field of global competency revealed a disconnect between what the expectations of the district were and what students were able to accomplish. This Executive Position Paper and Leadership Portfolio, which focuses on addressing and improving global competency within the Appoquinimink School District (ASD), addresses the disconnect between the districts' global competency expectations and results of the collection and analysis of student and teacher global competency data. The paper then goes on to present best demonstrated practices in the field of global competency from institutions currently demonstrating success and concludes with recommendations to the district intended to inform future practice and policy decisions that have a more direct impact on the global competency levels of the students and teachers within ASD.
