1 Principal Setting: K-8 Configuration Student learning is the most important success measure for teachers, schools, and districts. Maximizing student learning begins with setting meaningful goals for students through a thoughtful process that includes two main steps: Understand School Results and Set s. The Louisiana Principal s Teaching and Learning Guidebook is available to support this process and includes detailed examples of how the goal setting process is connected to the principal s work as instructional leader. The tools and information that follow provide a framework for setting principal goals including LDE Recommended Targets for all letter grades. I. GOAL SETTING WORKSHEET School: Grade Configuration: Principal: Step 1: Understand School Results (Standardized Assessment Summary Reports, Benchmark/Diagnostic Assessment Data, Principal Report Card, LDE Recommended Targets) - How have we performed in the past and how does this compare to our peers? - What do we know about how our students are progressing toward their goals? - Are there certain grades and/or subjects needing more attention than others? - Is there a subgroup (e.g. special education, etc.) not making progress when compared to their peers? - What diagnostic assessment resources are available and how does the student readiness data inform the goal setting process? Summary of Findings: Identified Priority Areas and Rationale: Baseline/Diagnostic Data:

2 Principal Setting: K-8 Configuration STEP 2: SET GOALS (Principal Report Card, LDE Recommended Targets, other baseline data) - How will the goals I set reflect the identified priority areas? - What level of improvement in Overall SPS reflects realistic expectations for student achievement? - What levels of improvement in one or more components of SPS reflect realistic expectations for student achievement? #1: Overall SPS Improvement Target Statement (based on Full ): of Target (1 point): demonstrated an insufficient falling far short of the target. of Target (2 points): demonstrated some impact on student learning, but did not meet the target. Full of Target (3 points): demonstrated a considerable meeting the target. Exceptional of Target (4 points): demonstrated an outstanding surpassing the target by a meaningful margin. Achievement range: Achievement range: Achievement range: Achievement range: #2: Component of SPS Improvement Target Statement (based on Full ): of Target (1 point): demonstrated an insufficient falling far short of the target. of Target (2 points): demonstrated some impact on student learning, but did not meet the target. Full of Target (3 points): demonstrated a considerable meeting the target. Exceptional of Target (4 points): demonstrated an outstanding surpassing the target by a meaningful margin. Achievement range: Achievement range: Achievement range: Achievement range:

3 Principal Setting: K-8 Configuration II. Principal Setting Timeline: June August - October January May-June Principal LDE Setting Data Templates publicly available based on the comparisons of to. At the beginning of the year, principals use available student achievement data (state and district/school level) and the Principal LDE Setting Data Templates to set goals. Upon release of SPS and updated Principal LDE Setting Data Templates, principals reflect on the goals they set at the beginning of the year. Principals either set or make adjustments to goals as needed. Districts may set policies related to completing final evaluations. These policies may vary throughout a district (i.e., grade configurations, data availability). The department provides tools to guide end of year processes including the SPS calculator, cohort tracking reports, and assessment reports. Also, CIS will remain open through the release of School Performance Scores. *Note: Guidance for principals who lead schools where statewide assessments are not administered or where students are being served in alternative settings will be available August III. LDE Recommended Targets The Department provides data sets to support principals as they set goals based in school performance. Each data set is separated into two categories based on the minimum requirements related to principal goals. GOAL #1: Improvement in Overall School Performance Score Principals review their own school performance in comparison to the average school, by letter grade (e.g., a principal at a B letter grade school would review their performance relative to other B letter grade schools). The recommended targets are based on below average, average, and above average improvement. For overall SPS of K-8 configuration schools, data is separated for schools with grade 8 and without. GOAL #2: Improvement in a Component of the School Performance Score Principals review their own school performance and identify areas for improvement (e.g., a subject area for improvement, performance of struggling students). The Principal Report Card and School Performance Score Calculator may be used to help identify these areas and the recommended targets are based on below average, average, and above average improvement.
