Effective Leadership
The Leaders Role
Our School wide Data Driven Instruction Mission Statement
In order to achieve a data driven culture, here at P.S. 95Q student achievement data is used critically with the goal of making wise decisions about instruction. Data is used as an ongoing cycle of instructional improvement in order to meet student's learning needs. Data is gathered and analyzed from a variety of elements such as; Comprehensive Educational Plan, School Leadership Team Assessments, Quality Review, Team Collaborations, Learning Environment Survey, NYS ELA & Math Data, Datacation, Advance, and Benchmark Assessments. Teams interpret data and develop strategies on how to improve student learning. Instruction is then modified to increase student growth and refined continuously in order to motivate student performance.
The Power of Teacher Rounds
Principals understand in theory, the value of teachers working collaboratively with the goal of improved instruction. But, hierarchical, top-down leadership from the principal isn’t always going to get the job done. If the model of distributed leadership isn’t embraced by the principal, then the goal of strong, effective teacher teams (Teacher Rounds) will remain an unfilled dream.” (The Power of Teacher Rounds, vivian Troen, Katherine C. Boles

^ Rounds creates a framework for critical colleagueship.
^ Rounds facilitates the sharing of successful practice.
^ Rounds help develop a shared vision of good teaching.

Improving Outcomes Through Teaming

School leadership has significant effects on student learning. It directly effects the quality of curriculum and teacher's instruction. Exceptional schools indicate that school leaders influence learning primarily by galvanizing effort around ambitious goals and by establishing protocols that support teachers and that help students succeed. - (Togneri Anderson, 2003)
