Are We There Yet?
Kinney, Patti
Principal Leadership, v10 n6 p58-60 Feb 2010
Schools that are trying to improve often grapple with the question, What will it look like when we get there? The "Breaking Ranks" framework calls for schools to have personalized learning environments, but what are the observable indicators that it has happened? Educators hear continuous talk about rigorous curriculum, engaging instruction, and authentic assessment, but how does that talk translate into practices in the classroom? They know that for students to be fully successful, they must work collaboratively with the students' parents and the community, but how do educators determine the level and quality of that participation? This article discusses the collaborative work done in Kentucky over the past several years that has resulted in the creation of school-level descriptors that have been designed to help schools evaluate the extent of their family and community involvement.
