Accelerated Learning through an Integrated System of Support

April 13 - June 15, 2021

12:00 AM - 12:01 AM

Systems Conditions, Stakeholders Series
Deputy Secretary Matt Stem will introduce the Accelerated Learning Series, highlighting the overall goals and objectives, critical components, and available resources as part of Phase 3 of the Roadmap for School Leaders.
Students benefit when families and community members form powerful partnerships with schools and school systems. Making decisions in an inclusive and transparent way leads to better decisions and encourages stakeholders to contribute and become partners in achieving the goals in the state and local community. Communities will support improvement strategies that they help to develop. Partnerships with a diversity of stakeholders, including parents, philanthropy, community-based organizations, and others will build local capacity to implement innovative and ambitious strategies for meeting the needs of all students.
How will the needs of students and families, especially the most vulnerable, and the voices of educators be incorporated into the structures and decisions school systems make for the 2021-22 school year?

Systems Conditions, Staffing Series
Decisions about how best to retain, assign, recruit and train educators are key levers for improving student achievement and equity
How can decisions about retention, assignment, recruitment and professional learning optimally involve the following?
*Consider what student and educator data we have available, and what we should begin to collect and analyze;
*Disaggregate data to consider equity in student learning; and
*Base decisions in data about student learning needs.

Systems Conditions, Managing Series
Making sustainable change takes time and involves collective effort, is context specific, and requires constant adaptation, data collection, and learning. This toolkit is intended to provide school entities with a cyclical process focused on results and applied tools to set goals, select strategies backed by evidence to attain those goals, and monitor implementation and effectiveness of strategies in order to adjust and continuously improve.
How do we know what’s working well and what needs to be adjusted?

Academics Series
A highly developed assessment system includes a balanced approach to using formal and informal assessments, classroom-based evidence showing growth over time, and involving students in the evaluation of their own work. The adoption of a systemic approach enhances the use of assessment data to inform teaching and learning practices. This system should include assessment tools that are congruent with the district’s values, goals, curriculum, teaching, and learning.

How do we create a data culture that focuses on effective use of data to inform instruction, support teacher collaboration, and engage parents and caregivers in their students’ academic growth?

Social & Emotional Wellness Series
By using frameworks to support social-emotional and behavioral instruction we can improve conditions for learning. This includes the creation of safe, supportive learning environments that have equitable, trauma-informed principles at the core of their planning. The use of data and universal practices can ensure equity and inclusion through a multi-level approach that provides services to ensure all students are provided access to academic and behavioral instruction.

How will equitable, trauma informed learning environments to support staff and student wellness be incorporated into policies, procedures, and practices school entities develop and revise moving forward into the 2021-22 school year and beyond?

Scaffolded Supports Series
The intent of providing scaffolded supports through academics, behavior and social-emotional competencies are to accelerate learning for all students through an equitable and trauma-informed lens, thus decreasing current skill gaps. The information provided will offer Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) the opportunity to consider best approaches to initiating the start of the new school year with guidance to provide: (1) accelerated learning through universal supports (2) addressing the core learning landscape through explicit instruction (3) class-wide interventions and supports (4) systemically addressing strategic and intensive supports, (5) accessing additional accelerated learning experiences and (6) ensuring considerations are in place for supporting students with significant learning and behavioral needs.
How will scaffolded supports be incorporated into policies, procedures, and practices school entities develop and revise moving forward into the 2021-22 school year and beyond?
What data do we possess or need to target an area for improvement (i.e., core, tiered, intensive, additional supports [e.g. tutoring])?

What training do teachers/tutors need to improve the use of explicit instruction and application of Universal Design for Learning principles?
