Arapahoe School shifts from lowest scores to steepest gains - Billings Gazette

Arapahoe School shifts from lowest scores to steepest gains - Billings Gazette | All Things PLC | Scoop.it

This is an interesting bit about a school in Montana that has "made significant gains" in student achievement -- something they attribute to the work of their professional learning teams.  My only complaint is that "making significant gains" is defined by nothing more than increasing standardized test scores. 

 

We need to get to the point where PLCs understand that success isn't solely defined by increased test scores.

Effective leaders are realistic about goals, even audacious ones. Are you? Or are your employees suffering from initiative fatigue?
William Ferriter's insight:

Really and truly:  This is a must read for any school leader who is trying to drive change.  Jane articulates why inititative fatigue is so crippling and then identifies signs that your teachers might be struggling to keep up with all of the new programs rolling down their professional pike.
