What is the purpose of this section?
This section provides sample agendas that a district and/or school could use to work through the stages of the Kansas Improvement Model. Reviewing these agendas provides an overview of the tasks to be accomplished throughout the process. The following section provides these agendas along with directions for activities and worksheets that support the agendas. Following each meeting, the core leadership team will have the information needed to complete the corresponding section of the Integrated Improvement Plan for districts or the Integrated Improvement Plan for schools.
Who uses this section?
The sample agendas are of particular use to the core leadership team as they customize agendas for their planning team and create a schedule of meetings. The sample agendas are intended to be flexible, allowing the core leadership team to make adjustments to fit the needs of the district and/or school. Although meetings are represented as one session, they could be a series of shorter sessions. Reviewing the sample agendas as well as current district/school practices allows the core leadership team to create an improvement process that will support the creation of the Integrated Improvement Plan for districts or schools.
Note on Sample Agendas with supporting documents:
The sample agendas and supporting documents found in this notebook are drawn from the SCHOOL SYSTEM IMPROVEMENT RESOURCE GUIDE: PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER (revised in 2005) from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. This guide maybe downloaded from the Washington State Department of Education’s web site http://www.k12.wa.us/DistrictImprovement/SSIRG.aspx.
