Stage Seven - Monitor Implementation and Progress
Stage Eight - Review and Revise
Subsequent Meetings: Planning Team
The Kansas Improvement Process is inherently flexible, allowing districts to adjust the process, agendas, and/or activities to fit the needs of the district/school.
Districts are encouraged to monitor continuously. Number and frequency of meetings in stages 7 and 8 is determined by the planning team.
What are the objectives for subsequent meetings?
Monitor the implementation of the improvement plan(s). Monitoring includes (1) ensuring the scientifically based and researched strategies are being utilized with students, (2) collecting data on the effectiveness of the strategies, (3) measuring progress against indicators of success, and (4) implementing evaluation procedures.
Conduct ongoing formative and summative evaluation of SBR strategies, staff development, and stakeholder involvement. Review and revision of the plan will allow the school and/or the district to cycle through as many stages of the improvement process as needed to support continuous growth.
What will participants do in the meetings?
- Warm-up and/or team-school activities as appropriate.
- Determine how often the district planning team will meet in order to monitor for implementation of the plan.
- Review improvement plans using the District/School Monitoring for Implementation Tool.
- Determine progress toward the SMART goal(s).
- Identify emerging issues around implementation of the plans.
- Determine methods to address emerging issues as the plan is implemented.
- Determine methods of evaluating the plan, which includes identifying benchmarks.
- Acknowledge and celebrate successes.
- Revise and update district/schools improvement plans as needed.
- Make plans to administer the District Integrated Needs Assessment at least once a year.
