7 Steps To Develop Strategic Leadership

by Josh Purvis on October 3, 2017

For administrators taking on the challenge of turning around failing schools, developing a strategic focus for improvement efforts is crucial. In one year, Stringfellow Elementary in Colquitt County Schools in Georgia went from one of the state’s lowest performing campuses to becoming one of the district’s most improved and highest scoring elementary schools.

Seven steps Stringfellow took to turn around a failing school: 
  • Carefully select the curriculum                                                                 Analyze data to determine what fits the school’s needs. Stringfellow vetted lots of curriculum choices and software programs before deciding on a reading curriculum Istation’s computer-adaptive instruction.
  • Schedule support                                                                                        Match the master schedule with the demands of the curriculum; the same goes for the educational technology. Istation provides adaptive curriculum with flexible teaching resources and a scope and sequence that supports intervention, development, and enrichment.
  • Ensure fidelity of instruction                                                                      Doing anything with fidelity will improve student outcomes. Istation’s reports  and teacher support helps drive fidelity, measure progress, and track usage.
  • Implement benchmarks                                                                                Paint a clear picture for the future and how the year is going with benchmarks. Providing direction prior to standardized test time, Istation’s priority reports pinpoints where intervention is needed and groups students requiring small-group instruction.
  • Analyze data                                                                                                  Don’t stop with just conducting benchmark assessments. The real-time data compiled by Istation’s personalized data profiles can be fully analyzed to drive instructional decisions.
  • Provide intervention                                                                                  Istation was a very important aspect of Stringfellow’s intervention process. The school  filled every available computer on the campus with students, five days a week for thirty minutes at a time to provide the best possible intervention.
  • Inspect the expected                                                                                Monitor, monitor, monitor. Encouragement and motivation are key while planning observations during critical  times throughout the year.
