Back-to-school: Assessing Team Progress


Back-to-school is officially underway and the tools and resources on our website can help your teams get up and running! Create a commonly owned plan that builds the collective capacity of staff to meet the needs of all learners. A good way to start the year is with the Team Assessment. The Team Assessment is designed to gauge your team's knowledge and use of OLAC's essential practices. It can be found in the learning dashboard.

Another excellent resource to use at the beginning of the year is the District Self Assessment Guide, which can be on the Moving Your Numbers website. Like the Team Assessment, the District Self Assessment Guide can serve as a barometer to measure a district's efforts to implement a cohesive improvement plan.

Both resources can be used to provide baseline data for district practices. The Team Assessment and the District Self Assessment can also be used later in the year as a way measure progress. Please contact us if you have questions about these or any other resources available to you on the OLAC website.

Best wishes to all as you begin the 2014-15 school year!
