We identified 2 new areas of focus that we were missing:

6-8th Scope & Sequence
9-12th Scope & Sequence
Data & ICAP Compliance
• “District Responsibility”
o “The district shall establish specific policies, which must include
a method to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness
of the standards set forth.”
• Data reports will be pulled 2-4 times throughout the year
and will be collected via CollegeinColorado and/or
Naviance (pay special attention to the yellow boxes)
• District and school-specific data is reported to Assistant
Superintendents, Instructional Superintendents, and
other district personnel, including the school board.
• The DPS Board wants to ensure that ALL students have
these experiences in compliance with state law.
What do all these expectations
have in common?

They are all EXTERNAL
motivators
• If only focus on the external demands…
o Compliance
o Actions, deadlines, requirements
o Appearance,
o Duty or obligation
o What you “should” do or what you’re supposed
to do
• Feel controlled, trapped, pressured, overwhelmed
• Creates resentment, frustration, & disconnect
between what say and do
• Lack the internal drive to meet the demand
Student PEP
Comments
(Handout)
Think-pair-share
• Read student comments (side A)
o Discuss guiding question
• Read student comments (side B)
o Discuss guiding question
• Compare and contrast groups of comments
Student Comments
School A
• “I don’t know what a PEP is.”
• “We haven’t really done a lot with PEP at the
sophomore year. It would be better if our counselor
would help us so later on we could apply for
scholarships and in order for us to succeed.”
• “It was helpful but haven’t done much with it. I
haven’t really talked about it. They sometimes do
announce things about it.”
• “I don’t know what this is.”
• “I don’t really know.”
• “I don’t know what a PEP is.”
Guiding Question
• What assumptions can you make about this
school’s implementation of PEP?

School B
• “The guidance helps keep goals in mind for after high
school.”
• “A Personal Education Plan is your plans for after high
school and your goals.”
• “I have worked with my teachers and counselors to find
out what I need to do to get into the schools I want with
the classes I need and it helped a lot.”
• “Yes, it was helpful definitely for my AP classes that I get
for college credit.”
• “I think that they did a good job on the PEP. They give us
a lot of information on colleges that will fit us. They try to
put us in the best classes.”
• “The guidance helps keep goals in mind for after high
school.”

My Core Values
& Beliefs
My Values
• Excellence
• Hard work
• Students first
• Integrity
My Beliefs
1) Belief that all students must graduate college &
career ready, with an understanding of the 21st
century college & career reality
o Believe that all students can be college–ready
(experience at Cole/DSST)
o Believe that there are multiple pathways and
that all students need the same foundational
knowledge and skills to be college AND career
ready
o Believe the problem is when we fall to one
extreme or the other (Not all kids can vs. 4-year
college of all)
Colleges and Employers want the same qualities
and skills in candidates. They also use similar
information to evaluate you.

Bachelor’s Degree Reality Check
• Bachelor’s degree students’ unemployed or underemployed is
estimated at 53.6% (Associated Press, 2012)
• “27% of people with post-secondary licenses or certificatescredentials short of an associate’s degree-earn more than the
average bachelor’s degree recipient.” (Pathways to

New Post Grad Reality
(they even made a movie about it)
• ALL students, (including “college-bound”
students) need career path guidance, careerreadiness skills, and an understanding of the
21st century job market.
• According to survey conducted by Cuuran
Consulting Group (2007),
o 75% of those who wanted jobs found jobs within six months of
graduation (25% didn’t)
o 43% are in a different career field than the one they entered
immediately after graduation
o 44% are still not sure they are in the right career field

My Beliefs
2) The importance of non-cognitive factors in student
success
• Academic Mindset
• Academic Responsibility or sense of control
• Efforts & Persistence
• Academic Behaviors (i.e. Characteristics of
Successful Learners)
• Learning Strategies
Academic
Beliefs
Growth Mindset and Sense of Personal Control are more closely
associated with school performance than test scores
(Farrington, Roderick, Allensworth, Nagaoka, Keyes, Johnson, and Beechum, 2012).
Research Study by Dweck
Fixed Mindset Group
Growth Mindset Group
Test 1 - 5th Graders were
given a puzzle to complete.
When they finished, they
were told either…
“You must be smart
(intelligent).”
“You must have worked
really hard.”
Test 2 - Same students were
given the choice between a
difficult and an easy task.
Most chose the easy task.
90% chose the difficult task.
They gave up quickly.
They worked hard at
figuring out the puzzle.
Test 4 - Same students then
asked if they wanted to see
exams of students who did
better or worse than them.
Wanted to see exams of
students who did worse.
Wanted to see exams of
students who did better.
Test 5 - Students were
given the original puzzle
again to see if they
improved.
Scores dropped by nearly
20%.
Raised average score by
30%.
Academic Beliefs
Test 3 - Same students were
given a difficult (8th g.) test.
Academic Beliefs
Control Group
1st year college students were
shown a video with older college
students talking about their
academic interests, with no
discussion of their grades or class
performance.
Treatment Group
1st year college students were
shown a video with older college
students talking about their initial
difficulty in college and how their
performance and GPA improved
over time.
Outcome:
• One week later – Students in treatment group outscored
control group students on practice GRE questions.
• One year later - Students in treatment group had higher
GPAs than control group by .27 points and were 80% less
likely to have dropped out of school. (Wilson and Linville
(1982, 1985)
Academic
Behaviors
Attendance, homework, and study habits are more
closely related to school performance than test scores.
Academic Behaviors
• Attendance:
o One study followed the 8th grade students with the
lowest standardized test scores as they entered HS in
Chicago. The lowest scoring students who had less
than a week of absences in a semester passed more
of the 9th grade courses than students who entered
HS with the highest test scores but who missed just
one more week of class (Allensworth and Easton,
2007).
Academic Behaviors
• Homework:
o Students with the lowest standardized test scores (i.e.
bottom third) who spent over 10 hours per week on
homework were able to raise their grades to mostly
B’s, the same grade as students with the highest
standardized test scores who did not do their
homework (Keith, 1982).
o Time spent on homework has a positive effect on
both grades and standardized test scores.
Academic Behaviors
• Attendance and study habits strongly predicts
student’s grades, even more than standardized test
scores or any other student background
characteristics.
• Grades predict high school and college
performance and graduation
• Grades even predict people’s future
alary.
o For each point increase in GPA, men and women earned
20% more money in their jobs 9 years after high school,
even after controlling for educational attainment (Miller,
1998).
o Why might this be? Because students who attend class and
complete their work are likely to practice work habits
needed in college as well as in the workforce.

My Beliefs
4) The importance of financial planning (beginning in
MS and ending with transition to college)
o MS Parent Support and CollegeInvest Grant
Matching Opportunities
o Summer Melt experience
My Beliefs
5) The importance of planning, goal setting, and
creating pathways toward goals
• GOAL + pathway + motivation = Hope
• If roadblock, create new pathway (multiple
pathways or routes to goals)
GOAL + Pathway +
Motivation = HOPE
• People who regularly set goals and pathways tend to…
o Set learning-based goals within their reach (NOT performancebased goals that may be outside their control)
o Have internal desire to learn new skills and master new tasks
o Track progress and increase effort with failure or setback
o Create new paths to goals when face obstacles or barriers
o Use positive self-talk (e.g. “Keep going!” “You can get this
done.”)
o Receive higher scores on achievement tests, higher overall
grade point averages, and higher graduation rates, even
when controlling for intelligence
o Have increased self-esteem, confidence, and perceived
problem-solving abilities and sense of control
o Have less anxiety
