Teachers will incorporate locally developed assessments into their classrooms to measure student growth. Students will receive instruction informed by data targeted at their appropriate learning objectives and ability. Students will understand the learning objectives and track their performance. Teachers will implement research-based instructional strategies. Teachers will utilize formative assessments to inform instruction as well as collaborate on ideas in the areas of curriculum, instruction and assessment. Teachers will participate in professional development to learn, adopt and integrate the new model curricula. Administration will provide highly-effective professional development geared toward the accomplishment of meeting these objectives. Administrators will also attend professional development to assure implementation. Administrators will work in collaboration with teachers to monitor the implementation and progress of formative assessments as well as data analysis. Race to the Top Pressing Issues Standards and Assessments Commitment to participate in professional development for teachers and administrators as it relates to the new academic content standards, new model curriculum and updates to local curriculum. Using student growth measurements that are meaningful and provide information that will guide instruction. Using assessments that accurately measure the achievement and growth of special education students. Using Data to improve Instruction Making clear connections between student data and improving instruction including the implementation of district-wide formative assessments. Providing professional development and time for our staff to connect value-added information to formulating instruction is critical. Great Teachers and Leaders Providing teachers with the appropriate skills, knowledge and professional development to utilize valueadded to improve instruction is one pressing issue. Another pressing issue is the adoption and

2 development of a fair, comprehensive evaluation system that utilizes testing data for effective and highly effective teachers and administrators. Success Factors and Possible Risks Our district will utilize our district transformation team that is made up of at least 50% teachers. This team will be utilized to ensure that RttT will improve student achievement and monitor our progress through RttT.
