Add any pertinent data such as student outcomes and needs assessments. Use this information to select Effective Practices then specific indicators you wish to focus on to achieve your goals.
Focus Your Team on What Matters
Team meetings are the driving force that will bring your vision to life. By deciding your direction, your team can now share responsibility for your common goals and the indicators that will propel you toward those goals.
Manage your meetings by setting agendas, adding specific indicators to focus on, and keeping minutes on what was discussed. Celebrate any successes along the way!
Begin Making Small Steps Toward Your Goals
By defining your future success, the Success Cycle is where "the rubber meets the road." Your chosen indicators are ready for your team's daily application.
Assess, Plan, and Monitor Your Chosen Indicators
Expect success by focusing on quality over quantity with each indicator. How well is your team is applying a specific indicator? Indistar allows teams to create many small, well-defined actions to ensure implementation.
As an extra boost of confidence and peace-of-mind, each indicator includes video examples and Wise Ways® of real classrooms applying the indicator.
