You don’t have to do everything to do the right things well. By engaging educators in collaborative professional learning improvement efforts, we can create the high-quality educational systems to which we all aspire. More Than a SMART Goal provides a rationale and methodology for keeping everyone in the system, including students, focused on the highest priorities (the right things) aimed at improving student learning outcomes. With careful planning and a robust system for measuring and monitoring strategic focus, implementation and impact, investments of time, resources and energy can be quantified and maximized for any reform initiative.
It is a treasure. You have pulled together the essentials around school improvement and innovation with a reader-friendly writing style on topics and tools focused on student learning. Oh, you are so right! It's all about the student learning! Carol Commodore
