TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE 2010 - 11 MISA LCB PLAN TEMPLATE

1. BOARD NAME:
   • Ensure your board name has been selected from the drop-down at the top right of the plan

2. DETAILED PLAN:

   (a) Component
   These are the 3 core capacity areas:
   (1) Human Resources & Training - The capacity of teachers, principals, and board staff to collect, correlate, and
   analyze data and use the information to develop and act on strategies to improve student achievement.
   (2) Data Management - The capacity to:
   • collect and store basic elemental information that is student achievement related (e.g. report card marks);
   • link individual student data based on the Ontario Education Number (OEN) as a unique identifier and to aggregate
   this data at the classroom, school, and board levels; and
   • correlate and analyze data to assess student learning, to monitor progress, and to identify patterns over time in
   order to establish strategies for improving student achievement.
   (3) Technology - The capacity of the technical infrastructure to support teachers, principals, and board staff by
   enabling the above.


   (b) Element
   Refer to the MISA Common Core Capacities Continuum for details about moving towards sustained capacity for
   each of the elements.
   Boards are encouraged to use their Progress Report status to determine areas requiring attention in 2010 - 11 in
   order to move towards sustained capacity.

   (c) Proposed Activity
   Identify the strategies, processes and activities that your board expects to undertake in 2010-11 to improve student
   outcomes through the Managing Information for Student Achievement initiative. These are some tips to help
   determine which activities are eligible and appropriate for MISA:
   • The focus of boards’ MISA Local Capacity Building activities should be on the management and use of data by
   principals and teachers to improve student outcomes at the school and classroom levels.
   • As MISA Local Capacity Building is a support to key ministry initiatives, activities associated with:
    ▫ development and implementation of the school effectiveness framework
    ▫ development and implementation of activities to increase student achievement in board improvement plans
    ▫ monitoring impact on student learning of selected instructional and assessment strategies / practices
    ▫ supporting Student Success and Cross Panel Teams
    ▫ supporting school and / or board professional learning communities regarding use of evidence for informing
      instructional practice
    ▫ analysis and interpretation of classroom and school level data
    ▫ implementation of Growing Success, including professional learning for teachers and principals to utilize
      results of assessments / evaluations to imrpove instructional practice
    ▫ development and implementation of Board's Leadership Development Strategy including SO and principal
      PLCs regarding use of evidence, professional learning and implementing evidence-informed strategies.
   • Boards can include MISA related activities that they are funding themselves to demonstrate their planned efforts,
   however the MISA Allocation column for each activity should only identify the MISA LCB costs associated with those
   activities that is being directly funded by the province.

   • The Ministry has provided a number of supporting documents for board planning since the start of the MISA
   initiative. Boards can find these documents on the MISA Collaboration Space [www.collaboration.gov.on.ca] in the
   "MISA Memos" section. MISA Leaders who do not have a username and password for the site should contact Traci
   Cooke at Traci.Cooke@ontario.ca.

   (d) Description of Items / Activities
   Describe the strategies, processes and activities that will be implemented to achieve year-end outcomes and how
   they relate to the Managing Information For Student Achievement Common Core Capacity Guideline

   (e) Description of Direct Linkage to Key Priority
   Explain how your MISA activities align with/support other ministry commitments aimed at improving student
   achievement. This should be a description of the existing challenge that will be addressed through the proposed
   activity.

   (f) Performance Indicator(s)
   Describe how the achievement of expected outcomes from the listed item / activity is to be evaluated (i.e. identify
   anticipated results and how success will be measured).

   (g) Partners
   Identify all collaborative partners key to the planning and implementation of the plan (e.g., ministry branch, MISA
   PNC, university, etc.).

   (h) MISA Allocation
   Identify the eligible planned expenses [i.e. Only identify Ministry allocation, not any additional board funding for each
   activity]. The total should reflect the amount of MISA Local Capacity Building funding your board is eligible to receive
   in 2010-11.

(3) DIRECTOR APPROVAL:
   • Reviews the 2010 - 11 MISA LCB Plan
   • Signs and dates on the last page to signify approval

(4) CHANGES / VARIANCES:
   • Throughout the year any changes/variances to either the activities or funding associated with the activities outlined
   in your board’s approved MISA LCB Plan require prior discussion with the ministry.
