Target Audience: Teachers, Administrators, Coaches/Coordinators (Ideally teams)

The transition to a proficiency-based classroom and school is complex, not just for educators, but for families, students, and community members as well. Taking the time to clearly develop and articulate the WHY, WHAT, and HOW of our systems–whether they are unique to our classrooms or common across a district–can help ensure a smoother transition and a more controlled message. The work we are doing to transform teaching and learning is incredibly important. By creating some simple, clearly articulated documents that help drive our work and communicate with our stakeholders, we can work together to ensure success throughout this complex process.

Participants will…
· Develop a succinct WHY statement that drives the work of your classroom, school, or district.
· Draft a visual articulation of the WHAT of your proficiency-based system.
· Draft a HOW document, which articulates steps for implementation.
