P                                PLAN: Identify the gap and the approach
Overall SMART Goal (Three year projection): Lake Norman High School will improve results on the Teacher Working Conditions Survey in the „Decision Making‟ domain to be above the district and state averages by 2010.




Insert (or attach) data table to support the selection of the above stated overall SMART Goal: (Also see next sheet for links to full data)
2006 – In the „Empowerment‟ domain LNHS scored 3.32 compared with 3.61 for I-SS and 3.44 for NC.
2008 – For 2008 the „Empowerment‟ domain was renamed to „Decision Making‟. The LNHS composite dropped to 2.76 compared to 3.20 for I-SS and 2.91 for NC.
2008 – Top five areas of PD in order of importance from the 2008 TWCS: 1) Special Education (37%), 1) Your content area(s) (37%), 3) Closing the achievement gap (35%), 4) Methods of teaching (32%), 5) Classroom management techniques (19%).
2009 - On the local ISS TWCS, LNHS ranks 34 out of 35 schools. Time - 1.60 (ISS - 3.06), F&R - 4/07 (ISS - 4.023), Empowerment - 2.68 (ISS - 3.77), Leadership - 2.94 (ISS - 3.93), PD - 2.59 (ISS - 3.4)...Composite - 2.78 (ISS - 3.65)

Data Analysis. Answer the data analysis questions.
1. What are the key strengths and data to support it? Facilities    2. What are the key opportunities for Improvement and the data to support it? In priority      3. What information/data is needed that we do not have? Need qualitatve data on the specifics associated with the low
and Resources is above ISS average                                  order: Time, PD, Empowerment, Leadership                                                       ratings…are these teacher, school, or district issues. What suggestions do teachers have for improvement?



Target SMART Goal (One year projection based on the gap analysis in question 2 above.): Lake Norman High School will improve results on the TWCS in the 'Decision Making' domain to be above the state average of 2.91 by June 2010.




         4. What is your next step (Identify key approach or strategy you will implement during cycle 1 to achieve your target goal.)? Deploy a school-wide Discipline Court.

Deployment Plan Quality Check:
What resources/budget needs do you have for the first cycle? None


If you identified budget needs, what budget code will you use to meet the budget needs for this cycle?


If funding is not available, identify the steps from the deployment plan that will address the funding gap.

What professional development, if any, will be offered in cycle 1 to support the staff in implementing the approach? Teachers will be instructed on the proper procedures for referring students for minor, serious, and major offenses (discipline court is aimed at serious offenses only -
these are our most frequent offenses).

Determine the measures/data that will be used to determine the effectiveness of the first cycle approach by answering the following questions:
A. What data will you use to determine if the B. What data will you use to determine if the approach was deployed with fidelity? NCWISE incident report broken down by school                      C. What data will you use to determine if the approach impacted the overall goal or target
approach was deployed? Daily discipline       administrator                                                                                                                                        goal? Plus/delta feedback on 10/29/09 from teachers on discipline court and its impact on

S               Study – Analysis of data after implementing an approach
At the end of cycle 1, answer the following questions based on the data collected from your identified measures:
    1. What are the key strengths and data to       2. What are the key opportunities for Improvement and the data to support it?                                                                  3. What information/data is needed that we do not have?
    support it?

Reflect on the data analysis for cycle 1 and check which option best describes your direction for cycle 2 (double click the box to and select “check” to check the box)?
Target goal has been met and is changed to reflect new target.                                     Target goal not met so we will continue current approach, but make improvements to deployment plan based on data analysis above.
 Target goal not met but data indicates current approach is effective so we will continue          Target goal not met and data indicates gap is widening so we will abandon current approach and identify a new approach
current approach and repeat deployment plan for the next cycle.


A               Act – Revise or continue with deployment plan based on data analysis
4. What is your next step for cycle 2 - identify key approach or strategy? (If you are continuing with the approach from cycle 1, restate it here. If you are changing your approach for cycle 2, state it here.)

    1. What are the key strengths and data to support it?                            2. What are the key opportunities for Improvement and the data to support it?                 3. What information/data is needed that we do not have?




Reflect on the data analysis for cycle 2, which option best describes your direction for cycle 3?
Target goal has been met and is changed to reflect new target.                                      Target goal not met so we will continue current approach, but make improvements to deployment plan based on data analysis above.
 Target goal not met but data indicates current approach is effective so we will continue           Target goal not met and data indicates gap is widening so we will abandon current approach and identify a new approach
current approach and repeat deployment plan for the next cycle.
A                Act – Revise or continue with deployment plan based on data analysis
4. What is your next step for cycle 3 - identify key approach or strategy? (If you are continuing with the approach from cycle 2, restate it here. If you are changing your approach for cycle 3, state it here.)

Deployment Plan Quality Check:
What resources/budget needs do you have for cycle 3?


If you identified budget needs, what budget code will you use to meet the budget needs for this cycle?


If funding is not available, list the steps from the deployment plan that will address the funding gap.




What professional development, if any, will be offered in cycle 3 to support the staff in implementing the approach?


Determine the measures/data that will be used to determine the effectiveness of the cycle 3 approach by answering the following questions:
A. What data will you use to determine if the B. What data will you use to determine if the approach was deployed with fidelity?                                                   C. What data will you use to determine if the approach impacted the overall goal or target goal?

P                                PLAN: Identify the gap and the approach
Overall SMART Goal (Three year projection): By 2010, Lake Norman High School‟s graduation rate will meet or exceed 93% and will increase by 2014 to 100%




Insert (or attach) data table to support the selection of the above stated overall SMART Goal: 93% cohort graduation rate for 08-09, 17 dropouts in 08-09 (see next sheet for data table)




Data Analysis. Answer the data analysis questions.
1. What are the key strengths and data to support it? Drop out      2. What are the key opportunities for Improvement and the data to support it? Reduce           3. What information/data is needed that we do not have? What are our dropouts currently doing? Can we get them back
rate cut in half, graduation rate exceeded 2008-2009 goal (See      dropouts to 0, increase graduation rate to 100%                                                in a program?
attached sheet)


Target SMART Goal (One year projection based on the gap analysis in question 2 above.): By June 2010, Lake Norman High School will Increase the graduation rate from 93% to 95.8%




         4. What is your next step (Identify key approach or strategy you will implement during cycle 1 to achieve your target goal.)? Continue Teacher Advisory Program with fidelity (continuation of Walk Throughs, regular feedback and validity of the program.

Deployment Plan Quality Check:
What resources/budget needs do you have for the first cycle?
$2,500
If you identified budget needs, what budget code will you use to meet the budget needs for this cycle?
FLC budget
If funding is not available, identify the steps from the deployment plan that will address the funding gap.
